Cardington and Cople not served between 9am until 3.30pm 4th -18th March 2020

We will be unable to serve Cardington or Cople on our 27 and74 services between 9am and 3.30pm from 4th-18th March. This is due to resurfacing works along Willington Road in Cople.

Our 74 service will operate direct via Moggerhanger and rejoin normal line of route from Northill. Our 27 service will omit Cardington and Cople and will operate via Bedford Road to Willington. 

Residents in Cardington and Cople are advised the nearest available service will be from Cardington Road Tesco or Northill. Service 74 is expected to be delayed during this road closure due to the extra time required to undertake the diversionary route. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

A6 Closure (Wilstead)

Due to the closure of the A6 between Wixams and Wilstead,  our 44 service may see delays in the peaks due to the closure of the A6 at Wilstead- motorists are choosing to ignore the signposted diversion and instead drive through Wilstead which has caused long delays in the evening. We’re expecting the A6 to reopen in Spring 2020. Please allow extra time for your journey when using our 44 service.

  • ic_bus_16 44
May 2019 until Spring 2020
