Service Changes from Monday 30th January 2017
Minor changes to the L9 timetable to ensure the service keeps to time along its route, including a slight change to the route in the Edwards Lane Estate area. Locallink L9 will now serve Sherbrook Road, Prior Road and Byron Street in both directions, this new section will operate as hail and ride. The 1500 journey from Bestwood Park will not serve Mildenhall Crescent due to access difficulties when the local school finishes, plus the 0902 journey from Bestwood Park will now commence at 0911 from Arnold High Street.
To ensure that residents along the Summerwood Lane area continue to have a bus service after the withdrawal of NCT service 2 we have changed the route of our L64 service. The service will depart from Lark Hill village, along Farnborough Road and then turn into Pastures Avenue and travel along Summerwood Lane, returning to normal route at Holy Trinity.
Bus stops along the Summerwood Lane section of route are currently only on one side of the road. To catch the bus on the side of the road without bus stops just stand opposite a bus stop and hold out your hand. The L64 will provide the Summerwood Lane area with new links to the Queen’s Medical Centre, Showcase Cinema and Savoy Cinema.
The route will be extended to Queens Drive Park & Ride and will replace the current Citylink 1 service. Between Nottingham Train Station and Queens Drive Park & Ride, the service will operate non-stop between these points, offering a direct service to the City Centre. This route will continue to be operated with electric buses.
Citylink 2 will be renamed Ecolink and will be operated with new electric buses. There is a slight route change, when returning to the City, buses will serve Pennyfoot Street and Bellargate and will improve connections for Hockley and Ice Arena.
