A bus, a bus! My kingdom for a bus!
Withdraw, my lord; I'll help you find a bus.
Slave! I have set my life upon a bus,
And I will stand the hazard of the wait.

Is this a decker which I see before me,
The doors toward my hand? Come, let me clutch them.
I have them not, and yet I see them still.
Art thou not, transport vision, sensible
To feeling as to sight? or art thou but
A dream-bus of the mind, a false creation,
Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?

Whilst the bus service does not operate on an evening after 2051 or on a Sunday, please take advantage of convenient and cheap parking by using the train to travel to Stratford town centre. An evening and Sunday train service is available from Stratford Parkway (adjacent to the Park & Ride car park) to Stratford town station, with a journey time of less than 5 minutes and competitive fares.
But it was something at Stratford-upon-Avon's (non Parkway) station that interested our Alan.
