Coronavirus altered service information

Many bus companies across Suffolk have cancelled some services or are operating reduced timetables. The information on this page will be updated as and when updates are received.

Note:

  • Due to schools closing, journeys and services that normally operate on schooldays only, will be suspended until further notice
  • Journeys sponsored by Suffolk County Council are still operating
  • We recommend checking your specific journey by calling your local bus operator before travel
