Important changes to the County Connect Service

As from 1st September 2014, we`ll be making some important changes to the CountyConnect service.

  • There will be a change of operator from Centrebus to Kier Fleet Passenger services. Kier are experienced operators of `dial a bus` type services and operate many of the CallConnect demand responsive bus services in Lincolnshire.
  • The CountyConnect service will continue in the Banbury, Brackley, Towcester, Daventry and Market Harborough areas.
  • The CountyConnect service in the Oundle & Thrapston area will be replaced by the Nene & Welland CallConnect service which already runs in the Stamford & Peterborough area and operates in a similar way to CountyConnect. All customers in this area will be automatically transferred to the new service and we`ll be writing to you in August with more information.
  • Unfortunately, due to very low patronage, communities south of Thrapston will no longer have access to a demand responsive service. However, a partial replacement will be provided. Northamptonshire Highways will provide more information in due course.
  • CountyConnect will no longer be able to provide a direct service between Towcester and Daventry.  This facility will end on Friday 29th August 2014.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this change.

If you use our Banbury, Brackley & Towcester, Daventry and Market Harborough services, you can continue to book as normal from the 1st September via this website or on 0345 4564474.
