Your Bus...Your Call!

CountyConnect is a new type of bus service brought to you by Northamptonshire County Council working with Lincolnshire County Council and Centrebus. It is a service that you can use for any reason you need to travel. The service goes where and when you want within the designated areas. The timetable is designed around you!

The specially designed buses are easy to see. They offer easy access allowing wheelchairs on board and there is plenty of space for shopping and luggage. The buses will be fitted with seat belts for passenger safety.

County Connect will take you to or from any designated pick-up point to any other in each village or town. More rural locations are also served if it is safe to do so. You can go from village to village as well as to your local town. You are able to connect to regular bus and rail services that will take you longer distances.

There is no fixed timetable as it changes every day, so you need to pre-book. The bus cannot pick you up without a booking. You can phone, email or text our dedicated booking team. Bookings can be made up to an hour before you need to travel (subject to availability) and up to a week in advance. It is ‘first come first served’, so the more notice you give, the more likely you are to get your requested booking.

Fares are charged based on the distance travelled, like any other bus service. Your concessionary travel pass will also be valid after 9.30am on Monday to Friday and all day Saturdays.

Booking Conditions

For a CountyConnect service please submit your request at least 1 hour before you wish to travel. Bookings will depend on availability. Bookings will not be taken more than 7 days in advance.
