Flexible bus services
Currently, there is one flexible bus service providing transport in the county.
What is a flexible bus service?
A flexible bus operates on a 'demand responsive' basis. This means the route is not fixed and the service runs only when requested by the passengers in the area where it operates. Some services will have 'demand responsive' elements within journeys that will mean the bus will only divert to particular stops by prior booking
How do I book it?
Simply call us and book your journey
Some services are very busy so it is an advantage to book your seat as early as possible. The call centres can experience high volumes of calls in the early part of the day. If you are able to phone later in the morning or afternoon this should reduce any call waiting time
Who can use the service?
Anyone can use this flexible bus service. The drivers will be pleased to help passengers who have impaired mobility and the buses are fully accessible
Where can I catch it?
When you book your journey we will agree a pick-up point you can use. This could be an existing bus stop or a point nearer your home
When can I book it?
You can arrange a journey up to an hour before your request for travel, regular passengers are able to book journeys up to two weeks in advance subject to availability. If you are a wheelchair user, please book the day before travelling
Can I use the service if I'm on holiday in the area?
Yes, just follow the booking procedure and tell us where you want to travel to and from
