Ruddington’s New Year Buses

Nottingham City Transport is promising that getting home will once again be easy and inexpensive for New Year revellers thanks to its late night buses.

In addition to its Navy 3 and Green 10 buses running every day over this period, except January 1st, Ruddington’s principal transport operator is once again running its New Year’s Eve “get you home” services – with late night buses running from Nottingham* hourly from 11.15pm to 3.15am after bringing in 2020 in the City. NightBus N48 is the best option if travelling back to Ruddington – coming here past the Railway Station (where you can also hop on), The Meadows and Clifton.


  • Easyrider, Robin Hood smart card and NCTX Buses app tickets are valid on NightBus services.
  • All day tickets and Grouprider tickets already purchased during the day are valid too.
  • A flat fare of £4 per person or £6 for two people applies if you pay cash on a NightBus service for any journey within Nottingham.
  • Concessionary passes are not valid on NightBus

Here’s how all Ruddington’s NCT buses are running over this New Year period:
