New bus service launches to link Stevenage, Hitchin and Bedford

1 month ago Wed 6th Mar 2024

Stagecoach East has launched a new half-hourly service that will link Stevenage and Bedford, tying these two key towns together for the first time.

The number 9A/9B/9C/9D service will link the two towns and also important destinations along the route, including Shortstown, Cotton End, Haynes, Shefford, Clifton, Henlow, Arlesey, Ickleford and Hitchin. This is an extension of the existing service which currently runs from Bedford to Hitchin.

The new service was officially launched at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday 19th February.

The extended service is funded by the Bus Service Improvement Plan and will be part of the national £2 far-cap scheme until at least June 2024, meaning that passengers can make the most of this new opportunity for just £2 each way.
