More buses will soon be taking passengers to and from Gedling Country Park every Sunday after Nottingham City Transport announced plans to extend operating hours on one of its services from this weekend.
A new timetable for the Sky Blue 46 and 47 service will see services arrive earlier and leave later from the popular attraction each Sunday starting from September 3.
The first Sky Blue 47 bus from Nottingham City Centre will be at 09:30 (rather than 11:30) and the last Sky Blue 46 bus from Gedling Country Park back to Nottingham will be 17:06 (rather than 15:06).
Anthony Carver-Smith, NCT Marketing Manager, said: “Gedling Country Park is proving to be a very popular destination, especially with the new Cafe 1899 now open near the children’s play area”.
He continued, “With Grouprider tickets just £5 on Sundays and all NCT day tickets and Easyrider cards valid to/from the Country Park via Spring Lane, travelling by bus is a great way to reach Nottingham’s newest country park”.
- Sunday buses from Nottingham (Sky Blue 47) depart at 09:30, 11:30, 13:30 and 15:30 (travel time approx. 25 minutes)
- Sunday buses from Gedling Country Park (Sky Blue 46) depart at 11:06, 13:06, 15:06 and 17:06
These extended hours are achieved by altering the direction a couple of the Sky Blue 46, 47 buses operate around Woodborough and Lambley loop on Sundays and customers in these villages will need to catch their bus on the opposite side of the road, where buses may be earlier than present.
