CountyConnect is a new type of bus service brought to you by Northamptonshire County Council working with Lincolnshire County Council and Centrebus. It is a service that you can use for any reason you need to travel. The service goes where and when you want within the designated areas. The timetable is designed around you!
Our brand new specially designed buses are easy to see. They offer easy access allowing wheelchairs on board and there is plenty of space for shopping and luggage.
County Connect will take you to or from any designated pick-up point to any other in each village or town. More rural locations are also served if it is safe to do so. You can go from village to village as well as to your local town. You are able to connect to regular bus and rail services that will take you longer distances.
There is no fixed timetable as it changes every day, so you need to pre-book and you can do so by phone or online via this website. The bus cannot pick you up without a booking. Bookings can be made up to an hour before you need to travel (subject to availability) and up to a week in advance. It is ‘first come first served’, so the more notice you give, the more likely you are to get your requested journey.
Fares are charged based on the distance travelled, like any other bus service. Your concessionary travel pass will also be valid after 9.30am on Monday to Friday and all day Saturdays.
For a CountyConnect service please submit your request at least 1 hour before you wish to travel. Bookings will depend on availability. Bookings will not be taken more than 7 days in advance.
