301 Bus Service to be Replaced

The concept is simple: instead of a bus following a scheduled service, you would 'request a bus' on an app to meet you at a stop.

It will be in service will be available from 6:00 am – 11:00 pm on Monday to Saturday, and 9:00 am – 6:00 pm on Sunday.

This will mean the following bus services will end on 31st March:

301, 23, 30/31, 37, 9, 17, 18, 24/25, 28 and 80

The service was trialled in October with the 28 route.

All single trips cost £2.50 and are free for Older Person’s and Disabled Person’s bus pass holders after 9:30am.

DRT will be available by smartphone app, web or phone booking.
