Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment at Nottinghamshire County Council, said:

“I’m delighted that we have been able to set up this new service in such a short space of time.

“We realise how important the peak time journeys are for local commuters, students and the community.  By looking at demand, and linking up with existing bus services, we can provide people in Nottinghamshire with the transport they need while offering the best value for money.”

“The new Nottsbus Connect Service 866 will also link up to our new Nottsbus on Demand service covering West Rushcliffe, giving local people more choice as to when and how they travel.”

The County Council currently spends £4.1 million supporting local bus services, whilst also investing in green buses and infrastructure.
