NEW timetambles for several routes in and around Amersham and Chesham are coming into effect next week.

The affected routes, operated under contract to Transport for Buckinghamshire, are the 71/73, 77, 78, 79, 149, 177, 190 and 194.

TfB says the timetable revisions follow the withdrawal of the company Redline from some of these services, and the need to focus on areas where there is the most passenger need.

All the timetables and a summary sheet of the changes are now available at

A leaflet is available to pick up from Amersham and Chesham libraries and the Parish and Town Councils involved.

Also on Monday Arriva and Carousel will be amending their commercial bus route 1 from Chesham to High Wycombe.

There is no change to frequency or the route but the revision involves timing changes to improve the reliability of the service.
