Changes to Route 500 bus
Stage Coach Bus Report by Councillor Fiona Baker:
Following a lengthy discussion concerning bus routes and timetables, Stage Coach are unable to alter plans to re-route the 500 planned from 25th June 2017. This is to take account of s106 funds from Radstone Fields.
The service within Brackley will be as follows:
Banbury Road, Market Place, High Street, Northampton Road, Poppyfields Way, Halse Road, Bridgewater Road, Ellesmere Road, Radstone Road, Northampton Road, High Street, Market Place, Banbury Road.
In addition, the frequency of busses will increase from every 30 minutes to every 20 minutes in peak hours, and an evening service will be introduced from Banbury at 22.30 hrs.
However, Pavillons Way will no longer be served by the 500 bus; residents will be able to board the bus either at Field View (Banbury Road) or Ellesmere Road stop by Halse Road.
Northamptonshire Highways is reviewing the County Connect service with the aim to introduce two round trips per day during shopping hours serving the whole of Pavillons Way, then via Halse Road and Market Place and Tesco (Oxford Road). It is hoped these journeys will commence on Monday 26th June 2017. The County Connect Service is always available to book for other journeys:
