Local bus operator CT4N, part of Nottingham Community Transport, launches its new service 33 today (Tuesday) offering improved links from Cropwell Bishop and Cotgrave to Nottingham.This new commercial service replaces the 822 route that was funded by Nottinghamshire County Council.
The new 33 links Cropwell Bishop, Cropwell Butler, Cotgrave, Tollerton and West Bridgford with Nottingham City centre.
Buses run hourly during the daytime with extra trips during peak times. Unlike the 822 that terminated in West Bridgford during the daytime, all trips on the 33 now extend to Friar Lane in the City centre.
Residents in Cotgrave will also benefit from the new route that will serve the housing development on Colliers Way, as well as Ringleas and Owthorpe Road.
Customers from other outlying villages can also link to the 33 from the new Nottsbus Connect service 833 funded by Nottinghamshire County Council.
CT4N managing director, Ian Combellack, said: “We are delighted to launch another new service that improves bus connections for local communities.
“With our smart vehicles and friendly drivers, we are really looking forward to welcoming new customers and increase public transport use in these areas.”
Single and return cash fares are sold on the bus and weekly and monthly season tickets, offering discounts for regular customers, can be purchased on the tripese.co.uk website and sent directly to a smart phone.
Route, timetable and fares information for the 33 can be found at www.ct4n.co.uk.
