HEREFORDSHIRE bus companies are trying to run as usual, but have been hit with inevitable delays and cancellations as heavy snow hits Herefordshire.

Buses in the city are running largely as usual, but elsewhere in the county there are delays and rerouted services.

DRM Bus, which runs routes around Bromyard, Ledbury and Hereford, including the 420 and 476, said services might be later than scheduled.


The 875 had got stuck at Bringsty, where the A44 is blocked due a reported jackknifed lorry.

The company, based in Bromyard, said as of 8am, buses were still running as usual at the moment.

In Hereford, Sargeants said all city services, as far as Credenhill, including the 71, are running as normal for the time being. If the weather worsens, this could change, it said.

Hereford Times:

All rural services and school runs are suspended until further notice, it said, with safety "paramount".

Yeomans said it will operate services where it can, with more rural services operating on main roads only.

It said: "As you may be aware, there is a little light dusting of snow in and around Hereford this morning. Please be patient with us whilst we endeavour to operate our services.

"Most of our ’rural’ services are currently operating on main roads only. We will keep you posted as best we can. Stay safe out there."


Its sister company Lugg Valley Travel, based in Leominster, said passengers should expect delays on all services.

Disruption to services today (Thursday 9th) due to weather conditions:

Service 402 will not serve The Meadows, 403 will not be serving Churchill Avenue and Newlands, 426 will not serve Stoke Prior and Risbury, 490 will not serve Yarpole and 494 will operate direct from Kingsland into Leominster, the company said.

All other routes will operate as normal, but with delays, it added.

"Thank you for your patience and understanding," it told customers.
