Metrobus shifts schedules for NHS staff

Go-Ahead Group-owned Metrobus has revised its timetables to better reflect demand and resources, aiming to maintain essential bus services for key workers, including those working for the NHS.

The bus company’s focus has been on matching bus timetables to key workers’ needs and shift work patterns to enable them to get where they need to go safely and comfortably. This includes keeping a good level of service on routes that serve the area’s hospitals.

Meanwhile, Metrobus has continued to maintain links between towns and villages: a vital connection for many people in these communities. After pulling over somewhere safe, Metrobus’ drivers joined in the nation’s recent mass applause for NHS workers.

Metrobus’ Managing Director, Martin Harris, said: “We want to make journeys as safe and convenient as possible for NHS staff and other key workers during this really difficult time.

“Our bus drivers and other colleagues joined in the applause last night to say thank you to our NHS staff, who are working tirelessly to battle this pandemic, looking after our friends and families.
“I am also very proud and grateful to all our drivers, cleaners and all of our other teams for their efforts in these unprecedented times and for rising to the challenge.”
