When HRG regained control of the Town Council in 2017, one of its priorities was to deliver improved local bus services.
It achieved this objective in August last year when the Town Council introduced a new Monday to Friday bus service. This service uses gas buses run on bio-methane produced from renewable resources. They are cleaner, producing no particulates, low emissions and 55% less nitrogen oxide than the previous service.
It was always HRG’s aim to extend the service, but we needed to prove the five-days-a-week service was both financially viable and popular.
I am pleased to say this service has been very successful. As a result, we are delivering against our aim and introducing a new Saturday service.
It will begin service on Saturday 16th March 9 am to 2 pm and it will be free for the day.
We encourage everyone in Henley to try it out – be they young, elderly, or families. Hop on and hop off the bus or make a tour of the whole town to see the routes.
This service will help reduce car travel and reduce pollution in the town.
