Future of Navy 3 Bus Secure!

Ruddington’s main transport operator has confirmed the changes it made to our Navy 3 bus service in January have been sufficient to safeguard the route. Timetable reductions were introduced ‘reluctantly’ earlier this year by Nottingham City Transport after the multi-award winning bus company revealed it had been running these services at a loss ever since taking over the old ‘Ruddington Connection’ route just over three years’ earlier. It was in November 2015 that Trent Barton announced it was to withdraw its historic bus service from the City to Clifton via Wilford…

Ruddington Bus Services Saved

Two popular Ruddington bus services due to be axed because of Council budget cuts have been saved by their existing operator. CT4N, part of Nottingham Community Transport, which currently runs the the Locallink L22 and L23 services on behalf of the city and county councils, has decided to continue to operate them on a commercial basis. These buses – which connect Ruddington with Clifton, Silverdale, Wilford Lane, West Bridgford Town Centre, Gamston and Lady Bay – were due to end on on June 1st, 2019. This followed a decision by Nottingham City Council last…

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. As we reported in December, there had been months of speculation in Ruddington that this route would be axed altogether due to insufficient passenger numbers – which would leave Wilford Road without any bus service at all and Clifton Road without a bus into the City. In fact, the Navy 3 has been…

Ruddington’s Navy 3 Bus To Continue

Nottingham City Transport and Nottingham City Council have announced changes to Clifton bus services next month but have revealed their Navy 3 via Ruddington will continue to operate – albeit to a reduced timetable. The good news for village residents who rely on the service comes after months of speculation that the route could be axed altogether due to insufficient passenger numbers – leaving Wilford Road without any bus service at all and Clifton Road without a bus into the City. This would have been the case just over three…

Ruddington Bus Fares to Rise

Our main village bus operator has announced that it is revising prices from Sunday March 25th. However, it points out that many fares have been frozen for the past four years. Nottingham City Transport says: “We appreciate nobody likes to pay more, but we are no longer able to absorb above inflationary increases in our operating costs and have to pass some of these costs on to our customers.” The new fares will affect passengers using NCT’s Navy 3 and Green 10 Ruddington services. An Adult “Standard City Single” will soon cost £2.20…
