99 Service

The 99 Service connects Gloucestershire Royal and Cheltenham General Hospitals via Arle Court Park & Ride and Cheltenham Town Centre every 30 minutes (off peak).

From Monday 6th April 2020 the 99 service will also serve Cheltenham Spa Rail Station on a temporary basis during COVID-19 and will be FREE for NHS Staff.

The service will call here on both inbound and outbound journey’s, after Granley Road (Cheltenham bound) and after Cheltenham General Hospital (Gloucester bound).

A temporary timetable will be issued shortly but in the meantime, please use the times from the stop prior i.e. Granley Road (towards Cheltenham) and Cheltenham General Hospital (towards Gloucester).

We hope this will go some way to supporting our wonderful NHS staff and other key workers in getting to where they need to be.
