For those of you that haven’t heard the news…there’s a new bus in town!!
The Eco-bus (funding by the Eco-town project) is taking in the areas of Bordon, Whitehill, Lindford, Standford, Blackmoor and Greatham by following three loops:
- The Green Loop serves the east including Lindford and Standford.
- The Red Loop serves the west of the town, travelling past the Phoenix Theatre and down to Whitehill.
- The Blue Loop goes via Blackmoor and down to Greatham.
All these loops start and end at the Forest Community Centre and serve Chase Community Hospital.
Attached are links to both the Bus Route map and Bus Route timetable and this information can also be found on our website, (www.whitehillbordon.com) at the Forest Community Centre, the Eco-station and on bus stops along the route.
The bus can seat 20 and uses the latest diesel technology to make it as environmentally friendly as possible. It also has disabled access.
Cllr Ken Carter, East Hampshire District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Investment and Regeneration, said: “I’m passionate about improving local transport and I am so delighted that this new bus service is up-and-running.”
Cllr Tony Muldoon, Mayor of Whitehill, said: “This is a much-needed local service and I hope that residents find it useful.
The route and timetable have been sent to everyone living in the town so that as many people as possible can benefit from this Eco-town funded service.”
Why not give a bus journey a go, in the next week or so, and see what you think about the latest addition to Whitehill & Bordon’s transport options.
