Students who miss the later evening UNO services we had until the cut backs which have progressively taken place over recent years, will be pleased to know that UNO are to run a later evening Mon - Sat 653 service from Hatfield Rail Station to St. Albans & return via the two campuses & South Hatfield.
With the loss of the later evenings UNO North Hatfield circular thirty minute 607 and thirty minute/hourly frequency UNO 602, the latter which has been reduced to two buses out and back to Watford Mon - Sat, and one at 19.10 off the Rail Station Sundays, extension of the 653 service is at least a step in the right direction.
The 653 will leave the Rail Station at 19.50, 20.50, 21.50, 22.50 going directly to The Forum, then in an anticlockwise loop to South Hatfield Bishops` Rise / Roberts Way, Galleria, de Hav, thence on to St Albans & return.
From St. Albans St Peter`s St. it will depart at 19.59 and at 59 mins past each hour until and including 22.59. The UNO website has the new time table :
www.unobus.info / routes/ 653. Another useful site for travel information in Hertfordshire can be found on www.intalink.org.uk
This is a comprehensive site also giving real time info.
Keep in mind this is a six month trial so it`s very much a case of use or lose!
Should I still go?
