Arriva's New Services for Houghton Regis



New bus services for Houghton Regis are set to start on 31st August, a spokesperson for Arriva has said.

The company's earlier plans (see item) to stop the 38 serving Parkside and Tithe Farm have been scrapped. The earlier plans were changed after readers of Houghton Regis News Desk complained about hardships that people would have had to endure in getting to places like Wheatfield Road surgery, the L & D hospital, or to local Academies.
