Arriva Bus 519 from Shrewsbury to Newport

After some pressure from a local resident we have been asked to publicise a recent message from  Jamie Crowsley - the General Manager for Arriva Midlands (Shropshire).

"The school (bus) service operates the same route as the off peak service through Edgmond via Shrewsbury Road and onto Newport Road via the Lion Inn. Following an agreement with Telford & Wrekin Council concessionary pass holders can use this journey into Newport. I have informed our driving teams internally and our ticket machines have been updated to accommodate this change however I will remind the driving teams again before the start of September."

So - if you want to travel on the 519 into Newport at peak times then you should be able to use your bus pass! Thanks go to the local resident who has helped to make this happen.
