Fares Review 21st October 2012

Fares on Arriva services in Herts, Beds and Bucks excluding Milton Keynes, will rise on Sunday 21st October following increased operational costs and a huge Government rise on fuel tax for buses.

With a 20% cut in the Bus Service Operators Grant combined with a planned 3p fuel duty rise, operating costs for bus services across the region  will go up and we have had to review our fares as a result of these changes.

Single fares will increase along the following guidelines

£1.00 – £2.70  increase by 10p or 20p
£2.80 – £4.50 increase by 10p-30p
£4.60 – increase by 20p-40p

Return fares will increase too.

There is no increase to our day, week and 4 weekly savers which still represent excellent value and can save you money if you travel regularly with us.  The 10% discount for purchasing 4 weekly tickets on line or via your mobile phone also remains.

For more information please contact Customer Services.

Westcott. RAF Memorial & Gate Guardian

For those who can remember back to the seventies

Many Westcott workers use Aylesbury Buses to get to and from Westcott




Subject: Westcott. RAF Memorial & Gate Guardian

Today the ABCT unveiled their memorial to the Westcott RAF airfield. It was jointly unveiled by John Bercow MP and Kenneth Bannerman of the ABCT.

We estimate around 100 people attended including representatives from the Royal British Legion, the New Zealand High Commission, the RAF, Westcott Parish Council and 20+ children from Westcott C of E School. Unfortunately we didn’t get a Spitfire flypast as the weather between where he took off and us was too bad. I’ve only attached one picture at this time as believe it or not I didn’t take many stills. (Just HD video).

The other item we have installed is a gate guardian. In recognition of the long association Westcott has with rocket propulsion. The decommissioned Thunderbird is/has attracted a lot of attention even if it lacks its four Gosling boosters. A big thank you to John Harlow who helped locate it.

For those that are coming next week to the get-together and who haven’t seen it yet, it’s just visible from Westcott High Street on the way down to the social club from the A41
