Passenger transport

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.


 Bus service 661

The review of service 661 (Peatling Parva to Lutterworth) is now complete and the intended course of action is to replace the minibus service with a demand responsive transport (DRT) service that passengers would book in advance of travelling.

We would now like to invite you to a community engagement workshop to be held at:

  • Gilmorton Village Hall, Main Street, Gilmorton, LE17 5LS
  • Monday 20 May 2019
  • 10.15am refreshments, 10.30am start of workshop, 12pm end of workshop

How to get there - the 9.40am journey on service 661 from Peatling Parva stops opposite Gilmorton Village Hall. The return journey towards Peatling Parva leaves Gilmorton at 12.17pm.

Booking is not required, but if you are interested in attending the event and require any special arrangements or have any other questions, please email or call 0116 305 0001.
