Bus timetables and journey planning

All Worcestershire bus information is held on the Traveline West Midlands website where you can plan your journey, search for bus timetables or find out about bus service disruptions:

Community bus routes

These are run by not-for-profit operators who use accessible vehicles with volunteer or paid drivers and provide transport for those in parts of the county which may have no or very limited registered  local bus services. Routes are usually to a nearby town or city.

Journeys must be pre-booked with the operator and all the booking details can be found on the relevant timetables below.

Community Bus routes operate on set days to a flexible timetable and can pick-up/drop-off passengers at a pre-agreed location.

A fare is payable and English National Concessionary Bus Pass holders can travel at a reduced rate of £1 per single journey which is a discretionary subsidy provided by Worcestershire County Council. Malvern Hills district resident Bus Pass holders are entitled to a further £1 per single journey reduction which is funded by Malvern Hills District Council.
