Carousel Buses will reshape its High Wycombe-based network from July 24. Hourly service 103 to Watford will be truncated at Amersham, while route 40 to Thame is withdrawn altogether, with Red Rose stepping in to provide a replacement. Also withdrawn is Chesham-Uxbridge route 105. However, some of the resources will be used to provide more buses between High Wycombe, Beaconsfield and Uxbridge, as well as reinstating the extension of route 102 from Uxbridge to Heathrow Airport.
