These 21 Nottinghamshire BUS services saved by Government grant

The council is being given £11.4 million to help keep them going and also build new bus lanes and other public transport infrastructure.

The Labour-run authority says the funding “provides a welcome boost as the public transport network continues to recover from the impact of the pandemic”.

The services which will be supported or enhanced include;

  • NCT 3, Clifton to City via Ruddington Lane: NCT will divert journeys into Silverdale, and south Wilford which would be without a service following the
    withdrawal of CT4N services 22/23. There are over 700 homes which would be without a public transport service within 400 metres.
