A new bus service for the North Cotswolds

North Cotswolds


I am writing to introduce you to a new on-demand bus service for the North Cotswolds. This service is being run by Community Connexions – a Gloucestershire charity providing transport for the most vulnerable in our communities. This is a door-to-door service, so not to be confused with the recently introduced Robin bus.

The service is due to start the week commencing 3rd April and the Bus will be based at Stow. I am writing to ask for your support in publicising the service in your parish/town. We are also looking at running regular shopper routes, these are door to door so ideal for those unable to get to a bus stop. We would like to know which supermarket(s) are most utilised in your area to set up the most suitable route(s). Passengers on these shopper routes can use their concessionary bus passes, so can travel for free.

To this end, we would be grateful if you would reply with what would be of best use in your parish. When the routes are finalised we will send you a PDF and some paper copies to publicise.

If there are groups you know that would benefit from the service please do let us know.

This is a pilot project for the North Cotswolds and we need your assistance in making it a success.

Kind regards
