City Centre Bus Changes

Just a reminder for those of you who travel into the centre of our city on buses, there have been some fairly wide reaching changes to the stops to allow the construction of the Metro. You can find full details of the changes and a downloadable PDF here, but they do affect services like the 37.

Centro have been working overtime to support these changes - they have had 30 staff out over the last week advising travellers, have handed out over 70,000 maps and have welcomed 2000 people to their exhibition bus to explain the changes. Staff will continue to be on street for the next couple of weeks.
