Council check: Hertfordshire County Council

Each Sunday, we judge how well one of our local authorities is promoting the bus services on its patch. This week we look at Hertfordshire County Council.

Where do the buses go?

Hertfordshire markets public transport in the county under the Intalink brand. A comprehensive selection of maps are provided, including a county-wide map, separate maps for each town and even town centre enlargements making it clear from which stop each bus route departs. 5 out of 5.


These are provided for all routes in the county, arranged by area. 5 out of 5.


A summary page links to details of various ticket types. The Explorer ticket is well co-ordinated and unlike in Surrey, is one uniform product across Hertfordshire. Plusbus is well described. There is however no way to find out the cost of a simple single journey. 3 out of 5.


Excellent maps and timetables. The Explorer and Plusbus tickets are well publicised, but other fares aren't as easy to find. Hertfordshire County Council scores a total of 13 out of 15.

  1. The three printed maps they produce are helpful and can usually be obtained in local libraries. A colleague visiting the area last week found that they had to be 'individually requested' and came with a verbal comment that two were out of date!
