Major Service Cuts
To quote the First Worcester website... â€œThe covid pandemic has had a significant impact on bus patronage nationally, our habits and way-of-life have changed immeasurably. We're making changes to our services in accordance with how and when people are travelling across the working week and at weekends.â€
- Service 31, Service 31A, and Service 37 are all withdrawn. Edit... On Thursday 14th April 2022 it was announced that the changes to these and Service 32 will be postponed for 3 months following requests from Worcestershire County Council.
- Service 45 cut back from running every 30-minutes to run every hour.
- All Sunday journeys on Service 44 are withdrawn, and the Monday to Friday and Saturday times are change to make the last full journey from Worcester to Malvern now 17:30, with one short-working journey as far as Malvern Link Retail Park at 18:00.
- The Catshill to Birmingham section of Service 144 is withdrawn by First Worcester. The Service 144A route number is retired by First and all their journeys now run as Service 144.
