We have been informed of the commercial decision by Arriva bus company to amend the 70 and F70 timetable, as from the 11th March. Due to the ongoing success of the F70 service and the very poor patronage on the 70 between Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard, Arriva will withdraw the 70 service completely and will increase the frequency of the F70 and include a F77 which will serve Stanbridge between Peddars Lane and the Five Bells Monday to Saturday, there will be no Sunday service through the village. The unfortunate part to this change is that Tilsworth will lose the 70 service to Luton/ Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes.
See timetables and map below, including the timetable for the 32 service operated by Arriva from the 12th March 2018, this will provide an off peak service between Tilsworth and Leighton Buzzard, Monday to Saturday.
