The ‘Enhanced Partnership’ (EP) is a partnership between us and Leicestershire bus operators, supporting improvement of bus travel through the delivery of the Leicestershire Bus Service Improvement Plan

The Leicestershire Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) sets out our ambitions to deliver the Government National Bus Strategy, which the council fully supports.

The scheme helped to reduce congestion, provide improved transport links and manage the extra travel demand created by the new country park development.

Passenger transport is changing in Leicestershire and, at the same time as the county council is facing significant challenges, we are also trying to offer a better service for residents.

Improvements are being made to two key junctions on the B590 Rugby Road corridor and a range of highway improvements to cycling and pedestrian provision, parking facilities and direction signing throughout Hinckley are also proposed.

Concessionary travel is available for disabled people to travel for free or at a reduced rate on local bus services in Leicester, Leicestershire and throughout England.

You can apply for an older person's bus pass for free travel on the bus anywhere in England during off-peak times.

If your concessionary bus pass gets lost, stolen or damaged you can request a replacement.

Leicestershire has an extensive network of public transport services to help you get to where you need to be.

You can use the park and ride to get to work or for a shopping trip into Leicester city.

There are Community Transport projects for each of the seven districts in Leicestershire, which provide accessible public transport services.
