The bus has served the town of Winslow and neighbouring Villages for over 20 years.

The bus is run by a Committee consisting of 6 Trustees drawn from the local community, and a part time Coordinator.
It is driven by volunteers, and full training is given to all drivers.
At present the bus runs five scheduled services:
Route 54 a/b/c/ - Every Wednesday morning, bringing in people from outlying villages into Winslow for market day, returning again around mid-day. Figures: approx 700 passengers a year.
Route 67 - Every Friday morning, runs into Aylesbury from Winslow through Gt Horwood, Lt Horwood, Mursley, Swanbourne returning at mid-day.
Rt 67a - Every Saturday does the same as 67 but picks up in Weedon.
Rt 68 - On the second and fourth Thursday of the month, runs from Winslow, through Swanbourne, Mursley, Lt and Gt Horwood, Nash and Whaddon into Westcroft Shopping Centre.
First Tuesday of the month – the bus runs a service into Buckingham.
[The 68 and Buckingham services require places to be booked in advance through the Co-ordinator due to heavy demand]
The bus runs over 50 excursions every year:
These include theatre trips, shopping trips, visits to stately homes, garden centres, the seaside and many other places of interest. These trips are open to all. Again, places need to be booked in advance.
The bus is also available to non-profit making community groups from the Winslow area.
