Red Rose Travel and Arriva will now be running a bus route through Bedgrove, after local campaigners had made their voices heard.

There was widespread dismay from Bedgrove locals at the changes to the routes in early 2018, and you can read all about it here.
Mark Winn and Julie ward, councillors for Bedgrove and Aylesbury East respectively said at the time changes could leave the elderly "trapped in their homes".

However Red Rose buses have introduced a new route, and Arriva have reversed the changes made last year.

The red rose service, number 7 will now service Bedgrove and Stoke Mandeville, via Aylesbury Town Centre.

Simon Finnie, Area Managing Director for Arriva Midlands South: “All off-peak journeys, between approximately 10am until around 3pm, will now operate via Ingram Avenue and Welbeck Avenue in Bedgrove following valued feedback from both our customers and local stakeholders.

"We are constantly reviewing all customer comments we receive and on this occasion we are pleased that we were able to make this small adjustment to better meet our customers’ requirements.”
