    The route covers Roundwood, Eastmoor Park, Southdown and a number of residential roads on each side of the High Street, around the town centre.  Spend as little as an hour or as much as a whole day in the town. Forget about parking and let us deal with the traffic.

    Our route map is here

    If you have any questions about our service, please call the Hopper Hotline on 01582 638007 or stop the bus and speak to our friendly volunteer drivers.

    Everyone’s welcome on the Hopper bus.

    We welcome bus passes and concession cards

    We can’t give change, so please have the correct cash fare ready 


    The Harpenden Hopper operates a ‘Hail and Ride’ service. Simply hold out your hand along the route to alert the driver and the bus will stop.

    Once on the bus, tell our driver where you want to get off and he or she will drop you at the closest safe place.
