Forthcoming Road Closures


Zipper Bus

Friars Street in Hereford will be closed for Roadworks from Monday 12th February until Friday 16th February. The Zipper Bus will not be serving Friars Street during the closure.


Service 413, Broad Oak - Garway - Hereford

The road between Bagwyllydiart and Orcop Hill will be closed for three days from Tuesday 13th February. Service 413 will not be able to serve Orcop Hill during this road closure.


Service 426, Hereford - Bodenham - (Leominster)

From Monday 12th February until Monday 19th February inclusive (except for Saturday 17th February) Bowley Lane will be closed for road works between 08:00 and 16:00 daily. This means that the 09:20 from Stoke Prior to Hereford and the 13:00 from Hereford to Stoke Prior will not be able to serve Stoke Prior or Risbury during the closure.


Services 453/454, Hereford - Fownhope/Woolhope

The centre of Fownhope will be closed for road works as follows:

Monday 12th February until Sunday 18th February between 08:00 and 17:00.

Monday 19th February until Wednesday 21st February between 09:30 and 15:00.

During the times of these closures these services will not be able to serve Woolhope or Church Croft/Court Orchard in Fownhope. Buses will turn in Fownhope at the entrance to the new development on the north side of Fownhope and will pick up/set down passengers at this point.

Please note that the road closure in the centre of Fownhope has been extended to include Thursday 22nd February and Friday 23rd February.

Additionally the closure has been extended to the north of Fownhope, past Cherry Hill Rise where buses have been turning round. We therefore regret that buses will NOT be able to serve Lucksall, Fownhope OR Woolhope at all between 09:30 and 15:00 on these days. We believe that normal service will be resumed when the road through Fownhope fully reopens on Saturday 24th February.

On 22nd and 23rd February buses on service 454 will terminate at Holme Lacy (Wyelands) during the closure periods.




Services 440/442

Please note that the centre of Pontrilas village is closed for 12 weeks from Monday 19th February. The closure is at the bottom end of the village but there will still be access from the northern (Hereford) end of the village.


Buses on Yeomans services 440/442 and Stagecoach service 23 will access the northern end of the village and reverse into the old Station Drive. This will ensure that connections are maintained between the services for passengers to/from Hereford.


Service 501, Leominster - Ivington - Hereford

On Thursday 15th February the road between Ivington and Upper Hill will be closed. Service 501 will divert via Birley and Upper Hill will not be served.

Yeomans Travel & Lugg Valley Travel - Swift Card

The cashless way to travel


From Monday 2nd November 2020 we will be rolling out a new way to pay on board our buses.

Using Swift will let you top up online, on the bus and soon you will be able to use Payzone facility.


Cards are free and can be registered online on the Swift website where you can top up or select an auto top up when the card balance goes below a selected limit.

The Swift card can hold a maximum of £50 at any one time and can be used to buy multiple tickets on one journey so if you have 2 people travelling, one card is all you need.  Your balance is shown at the bottom of your bus ticket too so you will always know how much you have left!


You can order your card online direct from Swift via their website:

Pay as you go is the only part of the scheme we are operating at the moment.


You can set up an account online which will help safeguard your card or you can contact us at Yeomans Travel and we can either send you a blank card out or you can call in and collect one if this is easier, plus you can always top it up here as well!


This will mean you no longer have to hunt around for change in the mornings or the night before and there is no expiry date, so if you are not a regular user the money stays on your Swift card and can be used as and when required.


For more information on this scheme, please see either the Swift website or contact Yeomans Travel.
