New service made permanent for St Andrew's night owls


A night bus serving St Andrew's is set to become permanent when the island comes out of lockdown.

Traffic & Highway Services trialled the service late last year, in response to calls for an additional route serving the parish.

Jon Guilbert, Senior Passenger Transport Officer for Traffic & Highway Services, said they had received "positive feedback" during its trial.

“The scheduled public bus service is routinely reviewed to take into account demand and requests for changes or new services," he said.

"We are delighted that we were able to introduce this trial at the end of last year in response to public requests and that it proved to be well received and utilised.

"Once we have entered Stage 3 of lockdown and the bus service is more or less back to a full timetable, we hope that the resumption of this additional night service will continue to benefit our community.”

Like other late night services, the new route is intended to be self-funding with a £3 fare. 

In addition to the N4 night bus, an additional Route 93 service departing Town Terminus at 07:35 on Saturdays is also proposed to be introduced to the timetable.

People can comment on these proposals by contacting passengertransport@gov.gg or writing to The Director of Traffic and Highway Services, Bulwer Avenue Office, Bulwer Avenue, St. Sampson, GY2 4LR by Monday 15 March.
