HEREFORD City Council has announced the places that the new 'City Zipper' bus service will stop at as it gets set to launch later this month.

The free service - which gets going on November 24 - will start from the railway station before heading to the County Hospital and bus station. 

From there, the buses will travel into the city centre, where people can get off at Yates, the Shirehall, Maylords Shopping Centre and Broad Street.


Further stops will be at the Left Bank Village, the Leisure Pool, Asda and the Friars Street Library, before the journey carries on back to the railway station via The Courtyard and Hereford Medical Centre.

The buses will run every 15 minutes from Monday to Saturday, and every 30 minutes on Sundays. 

The project is part of the Stronger Hereford programme, which aims to make the city a better place to live, learn, work and visit.

A spokesperson said: "Hereford City’s Council initiative to introduce the Hereford City Zipper Electric Buses, operated by Yeomans Travel, is a proud part of the Stronger Hereford campaign, a collaborative effort involving 15 trailblazing projects aimed at transforming the city by 2025.

"These projects, generously funded by £22.4 million from the Government’s Towns Fund and additional match-funding, will create new opportunities across culture, sport, skills, growing, greener travel, and the riverside."
