IMPORTANT! Information about the Arriva Bus 519 - Shrewsbury to Newport

At the Telford & Wrekin Bus User Group meeting on Tuesday 15th May, Arriva apologised for the poor communication regarding recent changes to the timetable and frequency of the route.

The Secretary of the Group, Katrina Baker, reports that changes had been necessary to address timetable issues and consequently some journeys had been deleted from the timetable. During the discussion, Arriva announced that the 519 service between Newport and Shrewsbury via High Ercall, Crudgington, Tibberton, Edgmond and Chetwynd is currently running at a loss, and could be under threat, but they are investigating all options as they wish to avoid this if at all possible. 

Representatives from Arriva, including the Manager for Telford & Shrewsbury, are keen to receive suggestions from the public with any ideas which might make the route sustainable. There were some good ideas aired, and more would be welcomed.

If you have any suggestions or thoughts to contribute, you can do so by contacting Ray Wickson, Chairman of the Telford & Wrekin Bus User Group:
