Service 65, which runs between Highwoods and Stanway will now be renamed as S2 with a slightly reduced frequency, effective on the 17th April 2022. Please click on this link for more details.

Buses on S2 will run up to every 8-12 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes.

Between routes, S1 and S2 buses will run every 10 minutes between Highwoods and the town centre.
