New Bus Service into Ipswich Hospital - 68 Bus - 3 Jul

New 68 Bus Service Into Ipswich Hospital Grounds Starting July 3rd

Following petitions from organisations and individuals in Kesgrave, First Bus has agreed to run a new bus service to the Garrett Anderson Centre in Ipswich Hospital grounds. Many people have asked for this, as the Woodbridge Road bus stops are quite a walk from the hospital buildings.

At the moment this will be an off-peak service on Mondays to Saturdays between approximately 10am – 2.50pm. If it proves popular with residents then we would have a basis to go back to First and ask them to extend the operating times.

This new hospital service will be the number 68 bus. It will run from Ipswich Old Cattle Market (OCM) via Woodbridge Road to the Garrett Anderson Centre, then via Main Road Kesgrave, and along Cambridge Road, Orchard Grove, Edmonton Road, Edmonton Close, Bell Lane back to Main Road. From here it will turn down Ropes Drive West, Fentons Way, Ropes Drive East and back to Main Road. In effect it follows a clockwise loop around Fentons Way and Ropes Drive. On its way back to Ipswich it will run via Edmonton and Cambridge Roads once again and the Garrett Anderson Centre.

Timetable and route attached below.
