New Bus Service and Timetable
GR Redford 20th July 2014

There will changes to the Bus Service from Whatton on August 3rd 2014. The 55 Service (between Bottesford and Bingham) will be replaced by an extension of the Rushcliffe Greens service.

The new service will provide an hourly service from Whatton to Nottingham, via Bingham, Radcliffe and West Bridgford. The first bus will leave Whatton - Old Grantham Road at 7:54 am, arriving Bingham Market Place 8:05 and Nottingham - Friar Lane at 8:50. This followed by departures 9.57 and every hour until 15.55, followed by 16.55 and 15.54. The journey to Nottingham is estimated at 43 minutes.

Services from Nottingham to Whatton leave 25 minutes past the hour starting at 8:25 until 17:25 leaving Bingham at 10 minutes past the hour until 18.10. The first bus from Bingham to Whatton is 7:25.

The service will be extended to Bottesford Station at peak hours only and the morning bus will leave Whatton- Old Grantham Road at 7:21 am arriving Bottesford at 7:35 am. Afternoon services leave at 16.61, 17.21 and 18.21. Bottesford to Whatton services run at 6:28, 7:40, 16.40, 17:40 and 18:40.

As soon as the formal timetable has been printed it will be available at the Jubilee Hall and in the Exchange Library (Old Telephone Box). We will provide a downloadable version on this web site and we hope to produce an abridged version (realtive to Whatton only) which will be published on this website and in the Whatton Village News.

The 56B service to Newark will not be available, although an alternative is currently being investitaged and we should have a better idea as to the situation in September.

Given that Nottinghamshire County Council were looking for a 30% reduction in the cost of supported Bus Services, the Whatton Bus Services have faired quite well with an improved service direct to West Bridgford and Nottingham. 

Please make use of our Bus Services and help us keep them.
