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.
The county council has developed a new Passenger Transport Policy and Strategy (PTPS) to ensure its passenger transport provision is fit for purpose and cost-effective.
We are reviewing all contracted services across the county and will be providing regular updates on the progress of the review. We are also inviting people to community engagement workshops so they can help shape the services for the future.
Engagement event resources
Booking is not required, but if you are interested in attending an event and require any special arrangements or have any other questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0116 305 0001.
Please note that Part B of the engagement pack is tailored to each individual bus service and is released in time for the engagement event.
Service 154 – Loughborough to Leicester via Anstey
In December 2019 Centrebus informed us of their intention to withdraw the commercial services of the 154. The Saturday journeys are supported by Leicestershire County Council and these will be retained.
We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause and are working with Centrebus to come to an agreement on the service and finalise a new timetable as quickly as possible.
From Sunday 26 January a new temporary reduced timetable will run. See PDF below for full details:
The review of Melton services is now complete. The county council has considered comments made at the engagement events and will be making the following changes with effect from Saturday 21 December 2019:
Integration of services 23 (Melton Mowbray - Nether Broughton), 24 (Melton Mowbray - Bingham/Bottesford) and 25 (Melton Mowbray - Stathern) from 3 services down to 2 services and Bingham no longer being served. New service will be 23 (Melton to Bottesford) and 25 (Melton to Stathern).
