THE FULL STORYThe Henley Hopper, the new Henley Town Bus Service, will launch on Tuesday 13th October 2020. TK Travel, a local, family run company, has been appointed by the Council to provide this vital community service. A new 22 seater Mellor Strata bus, with a low emission Euro VI engine, has arrived at TK Travel’s depot and will soon start to travel the 151, 152 and 153 routes covered by the previous bus service. The service is programmed to start on Tuesday 13th October and a low key launch event will be held on Saturday 17 the October when residents are invited to come and see the bus, meet staff from TK Travel and see the sanitising processes that the company uses to help make the service as safe as possible. The service is not profit-making and is supported through housing developer financial contributions, and a subsidy from Henley Town Council, which has been supporting the routes since Oxfordshire County Council removed all its bus subsidies as a cost-cutting measure in 2016. TK Travel are a family run company, voted “Best Minibus and Coach Hire Company in South East England” in 2019 by SME News. They are taking their responsibilities with regard to the Coronavirus pandemic very seriously and can be seen sanitising their coaches on a video on their website: https://tktravelltd.com/#services.
