Alternately, a freepost questionnaire is also attached to the timetable leaflets, so feel free to fill this in and pop it in the post to us. The information is giving us a snapshot about the purpose of people’s journeys, how often they make use of the Shuttles and where people are travelling from.
Planning to use the Shuttles a lot this year? Or want to make a financial contribution towards the future of the Shuttles? Then why not buy a season ticket allowing you unlimited travel on all the Shropshire Hills Shuttles in 2015. This also allows those with concessionary passes and who would like to financially support the Shuttles, to do so.

Over 6,500 passengers enjoyed trips on the buses in 2014 and below are some of their comments:
- “Can I say what a wonderful and beautiful area it is and how much I enjoyed my visit. I particularly wanted to thank you for the Shuttle bus service which I used as much as possible. I don’t have a car and try to use public transport as much as possible to reduce my carbon emissions.” 2014 feedback
- “I just wanted to take a moment to thank you, warmly, for the Shropshire Hills Shuttle Service: not only for offering such an invaluable service, but for the manner in which it was delivered. The punctual, professional service enabled a very enjoyable day’s hill walking, for which we are grateful. But over and above that, the friendly feel on the bus, the fact that the drivers pointed out local landmarks, and that they were concerned to make the journey interesting far exceeded the norm, and made the whole day memorable.” 2014 feedback
