Bishop's Stortford Town Council will be suspending the operation of the Stride and Ride commuter bus service from Thorley after the evening services on 28th June 2019.

Despite significant levels of resident engagement and advertising, passenger numbers have been low. Maintaining the service would have required significant public subsidy, which the Town Council could not justify.

Going forward, the Council is committed to supporting local residents making the shift from driving to public transport, and is looking at alternative routes for the commuter bus service.
