Looking   at bus  changes due to Central   Bedfordshire  cut  in subsidy  ,  Grant Palmer  and Centrebus   have changed some routes   , Nothing from stagecoach  East  as yet   running into  Central  Bedfordshire.     Looks  like   some villages gain others   loose   . Saturday   will be the difficult   day as the last bus   to Westoning Harlington and Toddington leaves    at 14 05   from Bedford   and Maulden      14 30   from Bedford .   Studham   will loose nearly  all of  its Public   Transport .  Grant Palmer has   rerouted   service 200   to orginal line of route      from Clophill  to  Flitwick  via  Silsoe Pulloxhill and Greenfield    instead of   Maulden  Ampthill.   Service 44   will cover Maulden and timetable  amended   accordingly   includes trips   in Flitwick  up Steppingley   Road   Steppingley   Hosptial   to  Ampthill Heights   covering the new houses   and Rufus Centre.     It seems   some villages   will have longer journey   times   as   more   villages are covered on route   eg   service 200   and   79  .    With   the volunteer  buses  working as well  Central Bedfordshire     we have   done better  than a lot of counties  .   A big thank you goes to  Grant Palmer   providing  these services  because if we only  had  Stagecoach  or Arriva   we would have no   buses   at all.     Please read Buses  magazine    May  issues  . an article on how  the county of Essex   deal with  funding  shortages    very interesting
