The Number 10 – dubbed ‘the Number Tennerfest’ by Transport Minister Guy de Faye – will run for a three-month trial period.
Operating only in the evenings on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the circular service will link about 60 pubs and restaurants and will run both clockwise and anti-clockwise from the Weighbridge.
The first bus set off from St Helier at 7.55 last night, heading for Gorey, Rozel, St John’s Church, St Mary, St Peter’s Valley and back to town.
The westbound bus left the Weighbridge five minutes later.
There are four services in each direction each evening until 30 December.
Launching the Number 10 last night, Deputy de Faye – who came up with the idea – said: ‘This should be a service dedicated to me because I will take massive advantage of it.
I believe in it and I believe it will be a success.
Some civil servants were a bit worried about calling it the ‘Ale Trail’ so were absolutely delighted to discover that the Number 10 route was still available.’
