From Thursday 4 February 2021, a free shuttle service will start operating to the new NHS Vaccination Centre at Shrewsbury Indoor Bowls Centre, next to Shrewsbury Sports Village, on Sundorne Road in Shrewsbury.
The service will be operated by Arriva in partnership with Shropshire Council.
Services VS1 and VS2 will run every 20 minutes throughout the day, with Shuttle VS1 running from 0735 until 2015, and Shuttle VS2 running from 0745 until 1945.
The shuttles will serve key locations around Shrewsbury, picking up passengers travelling to the Vaccination Centre. VS1 will serve Bayston Hill, Meole Brace – Moneybrook Way, Abbey Foregate – Shirehall and Monkmoor Road. VS2 will serve the Harlescott Park and Ride site and Coton Hill.
Upon arrival at the Shrewsbury Indoor Bowls Centre, marshals will be on hand to escort people to get their vaccines.
Over the coming weeks the service may alter as the main demand points become clearer. This should not impact people’s ability to use the service.
All buses undergo a daily enhanced cleaning regime, which includes the deep cleaning of all touch points with a suitable disinfectant. Customers are asked to follow social distancing rules on board the services wherever possible, by not using seats that have been taped off for their own and the driver’s protection. Face coverings must be worn at all times. Exemptions apply.
