The bus shelter at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital has had a well-deserved makeover!
The former shabby shelter, located outside the Inspire Centre, has had a total rebuild with the exciting new addition of an electric real time information screen.
The renovations took just two weeks and were generously funded by the Lynx Bus Company.
Graham Smith, Commercial Manager at Lynx, opens the bus shelter alongside Barry Quince, QEH Car Parking Manager.
Graham said: “Knowing the Trust has limited funds, we decided to pay for the full refurbishment.
“We wanted to enhance the experience for our customers by upgrading the shelter and therefore make our services more attractive too. The screen displays live bus times as well as other important information such as updates or delays on certain routes.”
Barry said: “A huge thank you to Lynx for this brilliant new bus shelter and to Norfolk County Council who funded the new digital screen. Our patients and colleagues are already enjoying the new screen.
“Hopefully this easier to use service will encourage more people to catch the bus to work or their appointments.”
A new route also began last week, number 41, which links King’s Reach and Fairstead with the hospital and town centre. The bus runs Monday to Friday and departs from the hospital 9am-5pm every day.
Bus timetables are available online at www.lynxbus.co.uk, bus stations and on-board.
