SOME bus services in Bracknell Forest will have change of operator in the New Year – with new providers taking over.

From Monday, January 13, people will board a bus with a different name and logo on the side.

First Buses will provide the 53 route between Binfield and Wexham Park Hospital, the 108 between Jennett’s Park and Bracknell town centre, and the 153 from Warfield to Binfield via Priestwood.

Courtney Coaches will operate the 152 from Winkfield, the 154 to Bullbrook, the 156 to The Parks and the 162 route which covers Garth and Ascot.

These changes will not affect timetables, frequency or routes and the contracts have been given on the same terms and conditions regarding bus fares. The services were previously operated by Thames Travel.

There are no changes to the council’s other supported services – the number 1 route will continue to be provided by White Bus, the 151/151A by First, the 199 by Courtney and 598 by Yateley Taxis.
