Bluestar S1 withdrawn

Bluestar S1 (Shirley-Lordshill) will cease running after the last bus on Saturday 9th April. It's subsidised by the City Council, so it will be them rather than Bluestar pulling the plug. Most of the route, through Lordswood, is already covered by First 21 (RSH Hospital-Hillyfields/Lordshill North), although only with one bus an hour and with inevitably higher fares.

A full list of all day tickets available in the region, complete with prices, is in the red panel on the right, below the transport links.
