Bus Service Changes

Bus Service Changes

Following review of Services 120 and 155, these two services have been combined into one – Service 125 – with East Midlands Airport no longer being served.

Since the community engagement events held in October 2019, where details of the intended changes were shared, we have reviewed the comments received.

Please note, it is LCC's duty to consider the provision of passenger transport services for areas not served by alternative commercial bus or rail services, to enable them to access essential facilities and services such as food shopping and primary healthcare.

Despite addressing the following issues raised (which will be incorporated into finalised timetables), it will not be possible to meet all journey requirements:

  • Last journey from Leicester to Coalville retimed to 17.45 (rather than the proposed 17:30)
  • Increased time between arrival and return journey in Coalville – Passengers travelling to Coalville on 10.15 journey from Castle Donington will have increased time in Coalville (from 2 hours to 2 hours 15 mins) before making return journey.

Please see attached, change notice containing finalised timetable for the new 125 service (Castle Donington – Leicester via Coalville & Bradgate Park).

This notice will be displayed on relevant buses and bus stops.

Please note, these service changes will take effect from 24th February 2020.
