Yes, they work Sunday timetables. Saturday timetables are reduced slightly from Mon-Fri service and Sunday reduced by about half.

yeah but they run every hour and start later in the day (which means i have to walk 2 hours to work as buses start running 15 mins after i start work)

Yes they do, reduced service though. An even more reduced service runs in cities/towns on Bank Holidays.

NO service at all on Christmas Day and Boxing Day.

They run in all areas of the united kingdom on a sunday normally there is a 30 minute waiting period for every bus.The metro also runs on a sunday but there is only a 15 minute waiting period between each metro.

They run just as often and on time as they do during the week except that the driver will probably have a massive hang over and may not turn up..........so a bus that runs the same as it does during the week with a bus driver hung over in the UK means it has about as much chance of running as an overweight Kentucky Fried Chicken lover that has just found a "Family Bucket for Free" voucher on the floor 10 minutes from his local Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet when it is due to close in 11 minutes.

yes they do but it is called sunday service ie there will be less busses than through the week , say if buses run every 15 min at peak times it may only be every half hour or even every hour that they will run hope this helps

Buses run every day with 1 exception, Christmas Day.

There are weekday schedules, then there are Saturday schedules (timings are changed slightly for shoppers), then there are Sunday schedules.
For some reason the powers-that-be have decreed that Sundays need a much reduced Bus service running.

Your local Bus-stops should have timetables attached.

yeah most of them do... we have different companies that run the bus services though so it depends what area you are interested in

Absolutely!
We don't recognise it as a day of rest anymore, and we certainly don't allow the Churches to decide our movements and requirements on a Sunday.
In most areas, if not all, there will be a reduced service.
As for trains, there will be a reduced service plus the chance (Often with plenty of advance warning) that lines will be closed all day for Service/Repairs.

depends on where you live!
in my village no they dont' but in the city close to me yes they do, most cities have buses runing 7 days a week, however the service is not as good.

Nope on Sunday buses are made to walk slowly.

Sorry, irresistable, but yes buses do run on Sundays, some routes are slightly different.

The very nature of Sundays has changed over recent years since the relaxation of sunday trading laws, and the day is now very similar to a Saturday.
