BUS passengers across Worcestershire are being reminded to check timetables with changes to some services occurring from September 2.

As happens annually at this time year, following reviews of services by both the commercial operators and the county council, alterations will take place.

Details are available at bus stations/stops on routes with alterations and information on all new timetables are available to view at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/bustravelnews .

Residents are also reminded there's an easy-to-use public transport route planner that can be accessed via www.travelinemidlands.co.uk . The handy online planner gives users all the information they need of how to get from A to B using public transport by simply inputting a start and end point of journeys.

Many of the changes have been instigated by the commercial operators and are usually only minor in detail.

Passengers travelling to or from school or college for the new term should check whether their service has been revised.

Anyone unable to check online can call the Worcestershire Hub on 01905 765765 for further information.
