Transport service begins

A COMMUNITY bus initiative is up and running in an area of Morpeth.

The Wednesday morning dial-a-ride service, operated by Adapt North East, covers the whole of Stobhill and it can go into the town centre. It started yesterday.

The vehicle picks people up and drops them off from their homes. Users must be members and book their ride at least the day before they travel.

Fares are £2 single, £3 return and £1 per child over five years old. For more information and to make a booking, call Adapt North East on 01434 600599.
