Boost for Luton shuttle

A programme to boost the number of shuttle buses running between Luton Airport Parkway rail station and Luton Airport by more than 200 services a week was launched yesterday by Govia Thameslink Railway.

The company, which operates up to seven Thameslink trains an hour from St Pancras International to the Parkway, said the move would make it even easier for passengers to use rail services to reach their flights.  

As of yesterday, the former 6min peak-time frequency of the shuttle buses used for onward connections is being extended until 9pm, increasing the off-peak timetable by four buses an hour, from 10min frequencies to 6min. 

The 230 extra services each week will be achieved by increasing the fleet from five to seven, with two additional Mercedes Citaro buses. Govia Thameslink said new staff were already being recruited and trained.

Thameslink and Great Northern passenger services director Stuart Cheshire said: “This development supports the local economy and provides fast, sustainable connections with population centres as far afield as Brighton, Bedford and, of course, London.

Luton Airport chief commercial officer Jonathan Pollard added: “Excellent rail links to and from the airport are absolutely essential to our on-going transformation and future success and this expansion is welcome.”

Lutons commercial boss may be pleased that there will be more buses running from parkway station...his customers would be even more pleased if they stopped closer to the terminal. It is quite ridiculous for thousands of pax to pull their trolleys past the nat express bays which serve a fraction of the parkway passengers. Sadly it gets no better at Luton airport .
