2017 passenger comments:
“It’s not every day your bus driver stops for a chat with a friendly horse. But, you see, that’s the beauty of living in rural Shropshire and having the fantastic facility of a weekend sightseeing bus to take you through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We took the Shropshire Hills Shuttle this weekend, and were rewarded with a truly enjoyable trip high up through the Stiperstones and Long Mynd, meandering along the narrow road through a glorious carpet of purple heather and meeting only the occasional vehicle, cyclist, walkers or, indeed, even stopping for a few minutes to meet driver Mervyn’s old chum the horse. Friendly chat, total peace, breathtaking views and a too-brief escape from grim reality – you just don’t get all that on the Number 33 do you? Thanks to the Shuttle team for providing this service and long may they be enabled to continue it.” August 2017
“Big thanks to the great drivers on the Shuttle Buses. Had an amazing day out yesterday. Real treat to meet both of them. Friendly, helpful & extremely knowledgeable about the area. Hope this fantastic service continues, it’s a real asset to tourism in your area.” July 2017
“Used the service for the first time – very good. Entertaining banter and good (and bad) jokes from Mervyn. Friendly service and good way to see and enjoy the Long Mynd and surrounding areas without the hazards of driving the narrow hilly roads yourself.” July 2017
“When in sunny Shropshire use the Shuttle service!” May Bank Holiday 2017
“Brilliant service, ten times better than driving yourself. See the fabulous scenery and enjoy the commentary by driver Mervyn. Can’t beat it for getting to know this lovely area.” 27th May 2017
“Just to say thank you for the great shuttle bus service you provide. The route is great and provides good coverage of the area. The drivers (and other passengers) are very friendly and also great tour guides. I really did not want to get off the bus as we were all having such a laugh – accompanied by a very talented accordion player at Bridges! Please keep this great service going and please consider running it in June. A memorable weekend – for the walking, the weather (appalling on Saturday/fantastic on Sunday) and the fun we had on the bus.” May 2017
“Excellent to be able to walk from Church Stretton to Bridges and get the bus back. Please keep this service going. It keeps cars off the road and is a great way to see the beautiful Shropshire Hills.” Easter weekend, 2017

- “We loved the ride, the views and the bus driver – he was so infornative and helpful – a delight. It’s an essential service for getting around for visitors and residents” vistors from U.S.A., August 2016
- “Following our journey on the shuttle bus this weekend with our sister- and brother-in-law, my wife and I just wanted to write and say what a wonderful amenity we think these buses are. As regular users, whether we are looking for something to eat at Bridges or the Bog Centre, great walks or just a nice ride through wonderful scenery, which varies throughout the shuttle bus season, the buses provide a lovely friendly way to travel through this area of outstanding natural beauty. We hope that despite the pressures on local government funding that money can be found to maintain this service in the future, which must be a great asset to tourism in this part of Shropshire.” September 2016
- “Really friendly drivers. Made even a Londoner feel at home. Great views. The best way to get away from it all. Thanks” feedback from our facebook page, 19th August 2016
- “My husband and I had the privilege of travelling on the shuttle bus from Church Stretton on Sunday 17/7/16. The vehicle was driven by a most caring and informative lady called Alex who had a wealth of information at her fingertips. The concept of having a Shuttle service is excellent and extremely far thinking. It would have been very difficult for us, and all the people using the Shuttle to have driven around the Shropshire hills yesterday due to the high volume of traffic in the area. Once again thanks for implementing a splendid idea.” July 2016
- “We (4 girls/ladies) have just returned from a super week near Church Stretton. We loved the area but the highlight of the week was our journeys on the shuttle bus. Our driver (Mervyn) was an excellent driver, very helpful & and such fun- we all had a good laugh which is so important when you’re on holiday. Will you please pass on our thanks to him.” 16th May 2016
