Buses on Christmas Day 2019: bus timetables in Bedford over Christmas and New Year

The festive season will see Bedford's public transport system under extra strain, as people travel to and from the homes of their family and friends.

This can have an effect on timings and availability of transport and may impact your travel plans. But fear not, we've poured over Stagecoach's festive timetable and pulled together everything you need to know about Bedford bus services this Christmas.
