Nottingham City Transport will be introducing changes to its network from the beginning of September as part of its regular review of services.
The new Chase Farm housing development in Gedling will be served by an extension of current Sky Blue 45 and there will be additional stops on Green Line “City Loop” services in the City Centre, providing improved connectivity to the Broad Marsh Bus Station, Library and Railway Station.
Orange 34 will be re-routed in the City Centre to serve the full length of Canal Street, Bellar Gate and Cranbrook Street. This new route provides improved connectivity to the new student accommodation areas on the eastern side of the City, as well as to the Motorpoint Arena.
Anthony Carver-Smith, NCT Head of Marketing said,
“We regularly review our network, taking into account customer and driver feedback. We are delighted to be able to expand our network to serve the new Chase Farm development and provide improved access to the eastern side of the City Centre. Overall usage of the NCT network is at around 90% of the levels we carried pre-pandemic, but there are some routes and areas where demand is much lower. Our September changes include revised timetables on Lime Line and Navy 49, to better reflect the number of people now using these services.”
Full details and new timetables are available to view at www.nctx.co.uk/servicechange and printed timetable leaflets will be available from the NCT Travel Centre from 23rd August.
