The company will begin its commuter service on 4th February 2013, picking up passengers at the bus stop by Platts garage on Oxford Road at 07:15 and dropping them off in Paddington. The return bus will leave Paddington at 17:40. It is anticipated that once a core number of passengers has been established, the company will increase the number of services, increase the size of the vehicles and add more stops at either end.
Commuters can buy daily tickets for £12 return or a Monday – Friday ticket for just £50.00, suiting both full-time and part-time workers.
Sprinters Travel was started in March 2012 and was initially set up by former Borlase student, Viviane Walker. Quickly joining the business was her father Bruce, who as a keen driver and mechanic complemented the business. Having both commuted to London over the years and attempted all the various means to get there, it was decided that a commuter bus could be just what Marlow needed!
Keen to make sure the bus service benefits Marlow commuters as much as possible, Viviane adds ‘I’m really interested in getting everyone’s feedback and suggestions, especially as we’ll be adding new services and I’m always seeking to improve the current one.”
