Passenger Feedback 

2018 passenger comments:

“We have done two trips so far this year, both starting from Cardingmill Valley, on the first trip we got off at The Bog Visitors Centre and then on again there later; the second trip we got off at The Shooting Box and walked back into Cardingmill. We both have bus passes, but have made donations towards keeping the service going. I hope that we may be able to use the service at least two more times this year, so we are not likely to be very frequent users but are keen for it to be there!” July 2018

My wife and I caught the 10:10 shuttle bus on Saturday 23rd June and were again pleased with the service offered and the friendliness of the driver. It is such a useful thing to have if one is not confident driving on single lane roads and it makes some walks possible that otherwise would not be. Thanks again, please keep it going!” June 2018

“I spent last weekend (19/20 May) in Church Stretton and made lots of use of the Shuttle. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t visit at all if the Shuttle stopped running as I love to get into the hills and am not a good enough walker nor a confident enough driver. I visited the pub in Bridges, the Bog Centre and Stiperstones Inn none of which I could get to without the Shuttle. I also went for a walk from Shooting Box and another in the Carding Mill Valley. The drivers are so friendly and knowledgeable and its a joy to see the beautiful countryside, well with the three hours drive each way and the cost of accommodation.” May 2018

“A fascinating couple of hours letting the bus driver deal with all the stresses of blind hairpin bends, the “alpine” roads of the Burway and numerous cyclists, while I enjoyed the ever changing views.” Comment from Facebook page, May 2018

“Boulton’s – on time, comfortable, and very good and friendly drivers – a clear 10/10!” May bank holiday weekend, 2018
