Hertfordshire County Council and Centrebus have launched a new bus service between Stevenage and the Brookfield Centre in Cheshunt, running through Hertford, Ware and Hoddesdon.
The 907 bus service launched on 16 April and is a hourly service, operating seven days a week between 7am and 8pm. The timetable has been designed alongside existing route 390 to provide a bus up to every thirty minutes on weekdays between Stevenage and Hertford, a commitment the Hertfordshire County Council made in its Bus Service Improvement Plan.
It will provide a new regular service between the towns, with connections to important destinations such as the Lister Hospital. The new service will also serve Watton-at-Stone and the Pinehurst Estate in Hertford, as well as providing a faster link between Hoddesdon and Hertford.
The new bus is being launched with a free ticket offer, with 500 tickets for the 907 and 390 service to be given away between 29 May and 20 August 2023.
The new 907 service will provide an important link across the county, connecting some of Hertfordshire’s key towns together with a fast and frequent public transport option. I hope that the free ticket offer will help encourage people to choose this new public transport link and leave their cars at home. We are committed to making Hertfordshire a cleaner, greener, healthier county and public transport is at the heart of our plans.- Cllr Phil Bibby, Executive Member for Highways and Transport
The 907 service is part of Hertfordshire County Council’s Bus Service Improvement Plan, which has funded with £29.7m from the Department for Transport.
People up and down the country deserve a modern, reliable, and affordable public transport system. That is why we have provided Hertfordshire County Council with almost £30 million to boost its bus services. Supporting Hertfordshire County Council in introducing the new 907 service is great for local residents, who will now benefit and be able to make the most of the fantastic work, business and leisure opportunities Stevenage, Hertford, Ware and Cheshunt have to offer- Roads Minister Richard Holden
The timetable for the 907 has been coordinated with the existing 390 service to make it easier for passengers to make onward journeys.
