Thought it best to post publicly the response from First Bus about the number 34 no longer stopping at Tesco in Warndon, because we have received so many inquiries about it...

“This is a consequence of Worcestershire County Councils unwillingness to enforce bus priority restrictions and provide a predictable journey time through the Lowesmoor area I’m afraid.

Route 34 is allowed 40 minutes to complete a round trip from Crowngate to Warndon and back. With two buses we can provide a 20 minute frequency.

That 40 minute journey time is becoming increasingly unpredictable. To rightly continue to provide an adequate level of punctuality we must save some time somewhere.

On an average day we carried 55 passengers to or from Tesco or roughly two per trip. By removing the route from Tesco we save three minutes – three minutes that are critical to maintaining a 40 minute round trip time. An alternative stop is close by.

Should the County do something to assist the situation we’ll be delighted to reconsider our decision.”

However, they still have not confirmed any changes to the 420. We will let you know as soon as we hear anything from the service provider. 👍
