Ruddington Buses During the Third ‘Lockdown’

Ruddington Buses Under Tier 4

Following the announcement that Ruddington will be put into England’s ‘new’ highest level of COVID-19 restrictions to start 2021, our village’s main bus operator says the latest change will not alter the existing schedules of either its Navy 3 or Green 10 services.

Ruddington Buses’ Return to Tier 3

Following the second national ‘lockdown’ in England, Ruddington’s main bus operator says the return to a slightly less stringent set of Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions this December will not alter the existing schedules of either its Navy 3 and Green 10 village services.* It’s hoped that Nottingham City Transport (NCT) maintaining its current service levels will mean emptier buses – for improved social distancing and therefore safer travel up to the festive holidays.

However this time, from November 5th 2020 the operator says it is continuing to operate all its advertised services…
