CallConnect in North Lincolnshire
People living in the rural areas of North Lincolnshire will benefit from the introduction of a new bus service. The new service is called ‘CallConnect’ and enables you to call for a bus to pick you up.
It is based on the CallConnect model already used by Lincolnshire County Council. In order to use the service you must register first. You can do this by telephone 0345 2638139
Or by the council’s email www.northlincs.gov.uk and follow the public transport pages.
The service operates from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.
The purpose of the service is to take you to a local centre or allow you to connect with an existing bus or rail service. The service will not compete with local bus services.
Once registered you can make your booking request. Once again this can be done on-line (available 24/7) or by telephone during the above hours. The booking team will then confirm your journey times. The service uses a number of pick up points identified in North Lincolnshire. On the day of your journey go to your pick up point at the date and time you were given. When the bus arrives you pay your fare or show your concessionary pass.
If you suffer from limited mobility then discuss this when you register as there might be an opportunity to pick you up closer to home.
The buses are 16 seater minibuses with wheelchair access.
