New stop at Hospital of St Cross

It’s all change at the Hospital of St Cross, Rugby as University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust (UHCW) opens the newly relocated bus stop.

The new stop will now make the hospital more accessible for patients and visitors.

Clive Robinson, Sustainability Manager said: “We strive to continually improve the experience of customers using bus services to get to and from the Hospital of St Cross.

“We hope that the new location of this stop will make getting into the hospital easier and safer, therefore giving patients and visitors a better experience.

“The Trust supports sustainable travel solutions that improve health. One full bus takes 60 cars off the road, which improves air quality, improves physical activity and reduces noise, whilst improving health and wellbeing.”

Sue Hillman, Chairperson of the Rugby Disability Forum said: “The bus stop is a lower stop which is easier for disabled patients. At the Rugby Disability Forum we promote accessibility for disabled people and if more bus stops were like this I would use them more often.”

UHCW will continue to work with Warwickshire County Council and Travel de Courcey to improve services.
