Service Updates

Hitchin to Pirton

Due to a road closure of Waterloo Lane in Holwell there will be a change to the route and temporary timetable of the 89 service from the 20th May 2019.  Currently these roadworks are expected to last for up to 9 weeks.

Service 89 will not be able to serve Holwell during this time.  A special service 89A will shuttle between Holwell and Hitchin at peak times on all days Monday to Saturday and also off-peak on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday only. 

The main service 89 will divert to operate direct between Pirton and Hitchin via Hitchin Road and Pirton Road with an adjusted route within Hitchin on peak services due to the bus reaching the town from the West rather than the North.

See a map of the diversion and of route 89A here
