H is for Hertford

We are pleased to offer a dedicated brand of town shuttles operating in and around Hertford 7 days a week. Our new and enhanced town shuttle network was launched in January 2024 replacing route 333 to Bengeo with the H5 & H6 and incorporating the Pinehurst service into route H1. 

All journeys nominally operate with environmentally friendly low-carbon certified Euro VI low-floor buses in a dedicated Town Shuttle livery (though our corporate branded buses may substitute on occasion). 

Buses depart Hertford Bus Station every 10 minutes during the daytime providing an hourly service on each of the six routes covering the Pinehurst, Horns Mill, Campfield Road and Bengeo areas of the town.
