There will be more winter bus services in Jersey than ever before, the politician who oversees it has said.

The timetable due to run from 30 September to 29 March was approved by Transport and Technical Services after a public consultation.

Operator Liberty Bus has increased the frequency of services, changed some routes and introduced two new routes.

"I am particularly pleased that Sunday services will be operating to most places," said Deputy Kevin Lewis.

The schedule shows for service 1 the frequency of services will be every 20 minutes, compared with half-hourly in the previous winter timetable, and on Sunday will increase from hourly to every 30 minutes.

Liberty Bus is also planning to publish temporary timetables for services 1, 1A and 2, which are due to be heavily affected by roadworks due to take place in Grouville.

Deputy Lewis said: "Many parts of Jersey... have historically not been served by Sunday buses during this period of the year, and I am sure these will be well received by the travelling public.

"As passenger numbers grow, investment in other bus services will take place which will enable frequencies and hours of operation to be enhanced in the future."
