Hereford is about to get an exciting new bus service, courtesy of Stronger Towns Funding.

Hereford City Council has purchased three electric buses that will run daily across Hereford city centre, providing free journeys for residents and visitors.

Led by Hereford City Council, this fantastic electric, zero emissions bus service will make it easy to travel around the city centre. Local company Yeomans Travel has won the tender to operate the service.

The aim is to offer a convenient bus service from the main transport hubs into the centre of town, giving residents and visitors an alternative to using their cars. The project will also create an electric bus charging facility and depot to facilitate electrification of further bus fleets in the future.

The Hereford Zipper will stop at many locations across Hereford City Centre including Station Medical Centre, Hereford Railway Station, St Owen Street, B-road Street, Hereford Leisure Pool, Asda, and The Courtyard. 

Committed to sustainability and convenience, the Hereford City Zipper Electric Buses will operate up to every 15 minutes Monday – Saturday and every 30 minutes on Sundays. 

This reliable and frequent service ensures that commuters can rely on timely transportation, fostering a greener, more accessible Hereford.
