Update 18th May: Normal train service has resumed, but remains  ‘for the use of key workers only’.

Live departures are listed here.


As from today (Monday 6th April), West Midlands Railway has suspended all rail services between Hereford and Worcester.  They have been replaced with buses ‘for the use of key workers only’, which are marked ‘Private’ and are run by DRM - who are probably glad of the contract to replace their temporary loss of the school run.

Buses leave from the normal bus stops near Ledbury station at approximately 6 minutes past the hour towards Hereford and 16 minutes past the hour towards Worcester.  You will need to buy your ticket in advance from the ticket machine by the station entrance and walk back to the bus stops.  (Though if it’s sunny, you won’t be able to see the machine’s screen...  There is no alternative since the ticket office is closed.)  Hard luck if you have a bike - they won’t take it - unless it’s a Brompton or other folding bike.

GWR has also suspended services through Ledbury: London trains are terminating at Worcester Shrub Hill.

Other information is available on WMR’s own website.
