Arriva bus service times will be changing from next week.

Bus routes and time schedules will be altered from Sunday onwards, particularly affecting Watford and South Oxhey.

The timetable changes will see the South Oxhey to Watford service altered, with the 503 no longer running and being replaced with Service 8, which will be re-routed.

The main section of the 503 between Watford and Hemel Hempstead will be replaced by extra Service 500 journeys to maintain the 15 minute service between the two towns.

There will also be minor timing or route changes to Service 10 at Watford, the 320 between Hemel Hempstead, Watford and Rickmansworth, the 324 between Kingswood, Watford and Maple Cross.

The changes to the bus services come as Hertfordshire County Council launched a consultation into cutting the subsidies to 52 of the county’s 119 routes.

The council’s consultation could see nearly half of the county’s routes affected, particularly those services which run after 6.30pm, Monday to Saturday and services that run on Sundays.
