Villages to lose bus service as council cuts funding for Sky Blue 47


A number of villages are to lose their bus service after a council announced they are to withdraw funding from August.

The Sky Blue 47 service, which is run by Nottingham City Transport, is to lose funding from Nottinghamshire County Council as part of plans to cut £420,000 from their bus budget.

Although council funding will now be withdrawn, NCT chiefs have decided it is still commercially viable for the service to continue running to Woodborough, but it will now axe part of the route covering Calverton, Oxton, Moor Lane Caravan Park, Epperstone and Lowdham.

The 47 route from the city to Mapperley and Mapperley Plains will remain unchanged.

David Astill, Commercial Manager for Nottingham City Transport said: “Following the withdrawal of the funding by Nottinghamshire County Council, we have looked very closely at many options on how we can continue to serve as many people as we can.


“We believe the circular routes we have devised achieve this by ensuring that Woodborough, Lambley and Mapperley Plains which are the busiest parts of the route, continue to be served by a regular service”

The link between Mapperley Plains and Arnold, provided by Sky Blue 46 service will also be axed.

Nottinghamshire County Council will be providing a replacement service between Oxton, Calverton, Woodborough (including Dover Beck Drive), Epperstone and Lowdham, numbered 747.
