Southern Estate off-peak bus service to be restored

Neil O’Brien, MP for Harborough, has welcomed the confirmation that a bus service will be returning to the Southern Estate in Market Harborough, during off-peak hours.

The new service will be operated by Centrebus, beginning on Monday 1st July and provide a route between the Southern Estate and Town.

Neil said, “I’ve met with the bus operators and local authorities to press hard for this, and I’m really pleased about this news. I know how important the service was to residents wanting to get to and from town during the middle of the day.”

County Cllr Dr Paul Bremner said, “Many residents, particularly the elderly, rely on this service and it’s great to see an off-peak service being restored to help people get around town and the Southern Estate again. I’d like to thank all residents who have been in touch on this.”

Neil concluded, “It is important as many people are aware of the new service as possible to ensure it’s well utilised, so I’d encourage everyone to make their friends, family and neighbours in the Southern Estate aware also.”
