More buses to hospital

Hospital patients can rely on an hourly bus service thanks to an improved timetable for 2009.

The Tiger Line will now run hourly weekday services from Hemel Hempstead to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, between 7.30am and 7.30pm.

The expanded timetable, that also covers Bovingdon, will be in effect from Monday, January 5.

The Tiger Line is operated by Bucks coach operator Woottens and the route links Aylesbury, Stoke Mandeville, Wendover, Great Missenden,

Chesham, Bovingdon and Hemel Hempstead, Monday to Friday.

People living in Bovingdon also have a direct bus link to Stoke Mandeville Hospital on Saturday.
