Commuter bus service privatised by council


Herts County Council is handing its ML1 bus service over to a private operator next month.

The Maylands Link route links the key employment area with the town centre and rail commuting connections for residents of Chaulden and Warners End.

Derrick Ashley, cabinet member for environment, planning and transport at County Hall, said: “At a time when public money is limited, we are pleased that this important bus route has been taken over as a commercial service.

“This link important for the local business community, helping to attract and retain employees, but it will also help to reduce emissions and congestion levels.”
