Managing director for Stagecoach Bluebird Peter Knight said: “We have been analysing feedback received from customers since initially reducing our timetables on March 23 and whilst the changes we are introducing from Monday, April 6 are relatively minor, we know they will make a big difference to those who are reliant on the bus for their commute to work.
“We have worked hard with our temporary timetables to ensure that we are continuing to serve critical routes.
"If our customers feel we haven’t got things quite right, then we’d really like to receive any comments through our dedicated feedback form which can be found at stagecoachbus.com.
In addition to enhanced cleaning regimes, Stagecoach has taken extensive action to protect the safety of its customers and staff with a number of additional measures in place.
Contactless payments are being encouraged wherever possible and social distancing guidelines are being displayed on buses, with larger capacity buses being used on busier journeys.
