Have a #RuddyGood Clean Air Day!

It’s Clean Air Day this Thursday the 21st June – when we’re encouraged to find out more about air pollution, share information with friends and colleagues, and help make the atmosphere cleaner and healthier for everyone. If you can walk or cycle to work or school that’s the cleanest way of all. Otherwise travelling by bus is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to go – especially now that Ruddington’s Nottingham City Transport services are greener than ever. Brand new Green 10 Bio-Gas buses were introduced in our village almost…

Ruddington Bus Service Changes

Nottingham City Transport is reminding passengers there’ll be changes to some of its services from this weekend. However, in terms of our Ruddington buses, only the Green 10 will see slight adjustments to its timetable. Due to increased traffic on the route, from Tuesday 29th May there’s a revised weekday peak schedule being introduced “to improve reliability”. If you usually catch the Green 10/10C/10X between Rushcliffe Business Park and the City, or vice versa, on Mondays to Fridays between 6.00am and 8.00am it’d be wise to check for new departure and arrival times before…

Our Navy 3’s going Green!

Ruddington’s main bus provider is set to further reduce its carbon footprint thanks to £2.7m of funding from DEFRA’s Clean Vehicle Technology Fund. Our single decker Navy 3 buses are among the 185 vehicles of Nottingham City Transport’s 330-strong fleet which are set to be retro-fitted to clean up their exhaust fumes. The cash follows a successful joint bid from the bus operator and Nottingham City Council. NCT’s younger diesel buses are capable of being upgraded to the latest more stringent Euro VI standards, resulting in tailpipe emissions which are claimed to be…

Ruddington Buses Diverted

If you’re catching Nottingham City Transport‘s Navy 3 or Green 10 into or out of the City Centre early or late this weekend beware that overnight diversions are taking place. These will also effect NightBus N48.

Another Ruddington Bus Driver Receives Recognition

Ian Neal, a regular friendly face behind the wheel of Ruddington’s Navy 3 bus, has just won Nottingham City Transport‘s final “seasonal driver award” of 2017. It’s certainly a great way for our village to round off the year since Green 10 driver Badar Sheikh achieved the same accolade right at the start of 2017 following HIS “mystery traveller” assessment. Mr Neal, who drives the Pink 30 route, too, will now be entered into the 2017 NCT Driver of the Year Competition next month. Good luck to Badar and Ian!
