Bucks/Oxon consultation - 104, 105, 106, 275
« on: October 05, 2011, 12:00:40 AM »
104/105/106/275 bus review

We are carrying out a review on bus routes 104, 105, 106 and the 275 and would like your views.

Services 104, 105 and 106 are contracted routes which serve Ibstone, Radnage, Bledlow Ridge, Bradenham and Saunderton. Sections of these services have little patronage while other areas are now better served by alternative routes.

Service 275 was commercially operated between High Wycombe, Stokenchurch, Chinnor and Oxford, but the bus company has found that this is no longer financially viable and is withdrawing this service. Working in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council we are currently providing a temporary timetable whilst we explore future options, which include combining elements of the 105 and 106 service within the 275.

Please see the below documents for full details of the proposed changes. The consultation ends on 19th October 2011.  Please send your comments in writing to:

Consultation on changes to bus services 104, 105, 106 & 275

We received a number of responses to this consultation and would like to thank those who took the time to respond. The responses were largely supportive of the proposed timetables and in particular of the routing of service 275 via Bledlow Ridge during the day.  This new timetable will operate from 3 January 2012 when services 104 / 105 / 106 will be withdrawn. 

We have recently received notice that Tigerline are withdrawing their commercial T3 bus route between High Wycombe and Princes Risborough and we will be subsidising a replacement service which will be operated by Redline Buses, starting on 28 December 2011.  We received a number of requests to retain evening peak journeys to Bradenham and Saunderton and have been able to include these in the new 321 timetable although usage will need to increase for them to be retained in the long term. We will be doing some additional promotion of these journeys to encourage more passengers but will need to keep them under review. 

Timetables for the revised routes 275 and 321 can be found below in Related Files.

Summary of changes: 
Bledlow Ridge and Chorley Road will be served by the new 275 service operated by Red Rose Travel with journeys to High Wycombe and Oxford from 3 January 2012. 
Bradenham & Saunderton will be served by the new 321 service operated by Redline Buses from 28th December 2011. 
Longwick & Bledlow Village will continue to be served by Arriva 120, Redline 320 or Risborough Community Bus journeys.
 Service 105 / 6 will be withdrawn from 3 January 2012. 
Ibstone & Radnage will no longer be served by scheduled bus route from 3 January 2012.
