    Does anyone by any wonderful chance know what is happening to these
    services. According to the Arriva web site, they will no longer be run by
    Arriva from the 3rd of September 2016. On contacting Staffordshire County
    Council, I was told that they would be run by Select Bus Services but I get
    no response on ringing their numbers.

    Many thanks....Ecker.

    Thanks a lot Lucy, that seems to show that the 11 and 11A no longer go down the Sandon
    Road, Marston Road and then into town...Oh Bugger !!

    A bus has just gone towards town along Sandon Road - I couldn't see the number from the side.

    I will say that there does seem to have been a lot fewer lately, and the closure will make it difficult from next week, anyway.

    Cheers Gram !! The change appears to take place on the 3rd of September so
    buses should still be ok until then.

    It will be virtually impossible to run buses past Charnley Road after next Tuesday, almost up to Christmas - Oxford Gardens will be barely passable in a car, I would suspect.

    A chat with the folk at Select Bus Services has revealed that they will be taking on the
    route previously run by Arriva which ran from Gaol Square and was known as "The
    Stafford Circular" (Services 11 and 11A). Apparently, it will run along Marston Road
    and Astonfields road but only one an hour and only one way.

    They also tell me that to get round the Sandon Road works problem, they will be using
    Common Road initially. The service will start on the 5th of September 2016.

    I will try to get back to folk who may be interested as soon as I can.

    Cheers....Ecker
