The quieter, smoother, greener way to travel

We are committed to improving air quality, addressing climate change and exploring sustainable transport opportunities. This is why we've introduced two brand new electric buses on the 240 (Berry Hill Flyer) route running between the Berry Hill Lindhurst Development, West Notts College, Sainsbury’s and Mansfield Bus Station. These two new buses join our existing electric buses that run the 510 and 511 routes running between Beeston, Toton and Stapleford.

The Nottsbus ECOnnect 240 (Berry Hill Flyer), 510 and 511 bus services provide a vital service for many people who cannot access the commercial bus network, providing access to training, employment, health, shopping and leisure facilities. The 240 (Berry Hill Flyer) service provide convenient connections to other bus and train services at Mansfield Bus Station and the 510 and 511 services also provide convenient  connections to other bus and tram services to Nottingham and Derby.

It is hoped the electric buses will encourage residents to use zero emission public transport as an alternative to private cars, and enjoy a quieter, smoother, greener way to travel.


Benefits of electric buses include:

  • zero exhaust emissions - helping reduce harmful emissions which impact on health and the environment
  • reduced C02 emissions and helps address climate change
  • reduced running costs due to cheaper costs of electricity compared to diesel
  • smooth and quiet journeys - no engine noise so passengers can enjoy a better journey experience
  • larger seating capacity - allowing more users to access the service
  • emission-free rides to popular destinations on the 240 (Berry Hill Flyer) route such as:
  • Mansfield Leisure Park for Apollo Bingo, Odeon Cinema and Sainsbury’s
  • Mansfield Town Centre
  • Mansfield Town Football Club
  • Portland & St Peter’s Retail Parks
  • Titchfield Park
  • Water Meadows Swimming & Fitness Complex
  • West Nottinghamshire College.
  • emission-free rides on the 510/511 bus routes to popular destinations such as:
    • Attenborough Nature Reserve
    • Bardills Garden Centre
    • Japanese Water Gardens
    • Stapleford and Beeston Town Centres
    • Chilwell Retail Park. 


Get the ticket to cheaper, greener travel

We have partnered with Nottingham Express Transit (NET) to provide a new Nottsbus ECOnnect Plus ticket. 

The new ticket provides all-day travel on the 510/511 bus routes and also on the tram network connecting at Toton Lane Park and Ride and Beeston Bus and Tram Interchange.

Tickets cost:

  • adults: £5
  • under 19: £3.

Tickets can only be purchased on the new buses. Initially passengers will not be able to purchase this ticket from the tram ticket machines. This will be reviewed in the future.

It is hoped the brand new buses and great value connections with the tram will encourage residents to use zero emission public transport as an alternative to private cars, and enjoy a quieter, smoother, greener way to travel.

The new Nottsbus ECOnnect battery-electric buses have been funded in partnership with UK Government.
