In a statement, Andrew Wickham, Bluestar managing director said: “We understand that local people and visitors may be worried that bus travel across the region will be impacted by this decision - but they need not be concerned.
“I can reassure them that Bluestar is ready to step in, to ensure bus users can still get to where they need to go.
"From 19 February 2023, the city and its surrounding area will be covered by a very similar level of services - albeit with different coloured buses running the routes.
“We will be working hard over the coming months to plan the new services.”
The company said the new routes and timetables are already in the planning stages and will be announced as soon as they are complete.
