There is also the introduction of a 9am weekday service on all routes. Theses introductions will see changes to the minutes past the hours the services leave from Market Place below:
151 (Elizabeth Road/Greys Road) – 15 mins past the hour

153 – (Abrahams Estate) 5 mins past the hour
The last weekday services will finish at 5pm instead of 6pm.
Councillor Donna Crook who campaigned to save the bus as her Dad is a regular user said “The new service on a Saturday can mean that more families can leave their cars at home and come into town on the bus which is pushchair friendly.”
The bus is being subsidised by Henley Town Council through Community Infrastructure Levies paid by housing developers.
