Fares to Increase on NCT Buses

Passengers who use Ruddington’s Navy 3 or Green 10 services will generally be paying a little more for their journeys from the end of this month.

Navy 3 Bus Service Changes

Ruddington’s bus users are being reminded that timetable revisions to Nottingham City Transport‘s Clifton services begin this Sunday, 27th January, and these will have an impact for passengers who currently catch the Navy 3 in and out of our village.
