YELLOW Buses will reduce some routes to a Saturday service from today.

It comes after the bus operator went into administration last week.

Here’s some useful information for passengers.

What’s happened to Yellow Buses?

Yellow Buses has gone into administration. 

The 120-year-old bus company has been handed over to Milsted Langdon LLP, a statement by the accountants said on Friday.

A loss of revenue, rising fuel prices and the general rise in inflation have all been blamed as factors for the decision.

The news came after Yellow Buses put out an apology online to passengers for service that isn't up to standard, stating that they had to "rebuild the business".
