Connexions buses have been awarded the service 16 (currently 44) contract from 1st April. We understand that they will be using new low carbon Euro 6, locally built, buses from the Optare group

The service, which links Acomb Front Street, Green Lane and Hamilton Drive to the railway station,  is currently run by Transdev.

The new service will be extended to Piccadilly

The announcement follows several months of campaigning by Liberal Democrats who collected a petition seeking retention of the service.
