D & G send out more buses as passenger demand increases

BUS operator D & G has added extra journeys to its timetable, as passenger demand increases as a result of lockdown easing.

With more people returning to work and non-essential shops reopening, D & G is stepping up services on 19 routes.

D & G operations director Kevin Crawford said: I am really pleased to put more buses back into service across our network so people returning to work can safely social distance on board.

"We are continually gathering data from the buses and our team of drivers and as the lockdown continues to ease, we will adjust our services to match our customers' needs as best we can.

"We always want our customers and every one of our colleagues to be safe and well, particularly when working and travelling with us.

"Be it our drivers, engineers, cleaners, dispatch staff and the rest of the frontline team who are working hard and continue to do a fantastic job for you and for us under ever-changing circumstances."

Bus services in North Staffordshire were dramatically scaled down at the start of the coronavirus lockdown as Government urged travellers to step away from public transport.

In the Staffordshire Moorlands services now funning every hour:

Service 8A: Hanley, Smallthorne, Norton, Brown Edge and Endon.

Service 16: Hanley, Werrington, Cheddleton, Leek and Haregate.

Service 32X: Hanley, Werrington, Cheadle and Upper Tean.

Service 93: Biddulph Moor, Biddulph and Gillow Heath.

Service 94A: Newcastle, Wolstanton, Tunstall, Chell, Biddulph and Congleton.
