If we can only run one bus...

 

All transport operators are having problems with driver availability from time to time.  Sadly Going Forward Buses is no exception, although we do make every effort to avoid cancelling services.  However, in the event that we can only run of the two buses we normally run on Tuesdays to Fridays we plan to adjust our services as shown below.  We cannot operate services on all routes, so where we are unable to operate a return journey we will have to cancel all journeys on that route so as not to leave anyone stranded.

 

Our facebook page will show if we are having to operate the one bus service.  The principal changes are shown below.  Please note, the standard Monday to Friday service on route 134 is expected to operate in full without any cancellations.  We have designed the one bus service so that we can maintain all services on this key route especially as it is currently receiving some support from Oxfordshire County Council whereas our other routes are not.

 

Route 133 Goring - Wallingford via Streatley and Moulsford

The Tuesdays and Thursdays services will run.

The Wednesdays and Fridays services unfortunately will NOT be able to run.

 

Route 134 Goring - Cleeve - The Stokes - Wallingford

All services are expected to run as shown in the timetable except the 12.25 Tuesdays only from Goring to Wallingford which will depart Goring station at 12.43 and run fast to Wallingford (not via Scout Hut or Perch & Pike).

 

Route 137 Wallingford - Watlington

The Fridays services unfortunately will NOT be able to run.

 

Route 138 Wallingford - Home Park - Dorchester - Berinsfield

The Mondays services will run.

The Wednesdays services will run (although may be a few minutes late) but please note, as we have only one bus there may not be room for everyone.  We apologise in advance if this is the case.

The Fridays services from Home Park to Wallingford at 09.45 and the 11.05 from Home Park to Wallingford unfortunately will NOT be able to run.  We will try to accommodate Home Park passengers on our Dorchester Flyer services which will run, but please note, as we have only one bus there may not be room for everyone.  We apologise in advance if this is the case.

 

Route 142-8 Goring - Streatley - Beale Park - Pangbourne - Whitchurch - Whitchurch Hill - Crays Pond - Caversham - Reading

The Tuesdays services unfortunately will NOT be able to run.  For those who really need to get to Reading, a service will run at 09.45 from Goring via Streatley, Beale Park, Pangbourne, Whitchurch, Whitchurch Hill and Crays Pond (at normal times) then direct to Goring station for a connection into the 10.23 train from Goring to Reading (due to arrive Reading at 10.36).  A service in the reverse direction will run from Goring station at 12.20, which will connect with the 11.53 train from Reading (due Goring at 12.05).  Unfortunately concessionary passes are not valid on trains, so you would need to purchase a ticket for the train.  A day return from Goring to Reading costs £5.10 (£3.35 with most railcards).

 

Route D1 Wallingford - Home Park - Dorchester - Berinsfield - Clifton Hampden - Long Wittenham - Didcot

The Mondays services will run.

The Wednesdays services from Wallingford to Didcot at 09.30 and from Didcot to Wallingford at 12.26 will run (although may be a few minutes late) but please note, as we have only one bus there may not be room for everyone.  We apologise in advance if this is the case.

The Wednesdays services from Didcot to Wallingford via Long Wittenham and Berinsfield at 10.05 and from Wallingford returning at 11.45 unfortunately will NOT be able to run.

 

Route D2 Didcot - The Moretons - Wallingford

The Wednesdays services will run.

 

Route H1 and Route H2 Goring - Stoke Row - Sonning Common - Henley

The Thursdays services unfortunately will NOT be able to run.

 

We are very sorry for the inconvenience these changes will cause, and we sincerely hope that we will not have to implement these changes.
