16 December 2014 - Changes to bus services in January 2015
There will be changes to routes 306, 306A and 398 from 3 January.
Now that roadworks in Elstree have been completed traffic is flowing faster, but heavy traffic in Watford and Borehamwood can still be an occasional problem. The new timetables will allow more buses to run on time even after unexpected delays earlier in the day.
All buses on the main service will run anticlockwise around North Borehamwood as route 306. Only a couple of peak journeys will run clockwise as route 306A.
The timetable on route 398 will be adjusted to account for the needs of pupils travelling to and from the new UTC school at Elstree and other schools along the route. Delays on the A1 have been offset by more buses not running via Clare Hall in South Mimms.
