More trentbarton routes will see more frequent services and Sunday timetables from this coming Sunday July 26.

As further coronavirus restrictions are eased and more people seek to travel, trentbarton has continued to reinstate services and boost reduced frequencies to be there for customers who now want to travel.

From Sunday 26th, the improvements are:

  • red arrow will run every 20 minutes with an hourly evening service
  • V3 will see its normal Sunday daytime timetable return, with last buses at 6.15pm from Derby and 7.15pm from Burton
  • the comet is to get additional journeys at 7.10pm from Derby and 8.20pm from Chesterfield on Mondays to Saturdays
  • 20 sees its normal Sunday timetable reinstated
  • 21 gets evening journeys added Monday to Saturday
  • H1 is to get hourly evening services added Monday to Saturday and its normal Sunday timetable reinstated
  • ilkeston flyer, rainbow one, the two, the threes and the calverton all have a Monday to Saturday evening service added*
  • the keyworth gets a Monday to Saturday evening service and an hourly Sunday daytime service added

Plus, at the start of August the sixes move to an every 15 minutes timetable, which includes 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4 and 6X.

Jeff Counsell, managing director at trentbarton, said: “It is great to get more services back on the road so our customers can again choose to travel on our Covid-secure buses. 

“Each bus gets an overnight deep clean and additional disinfections during each day.  Our drivers have their temperature checked each shift and have protective screens.

“There are sanitising stations on board and payment can be contactless.  Customers still need to wear face coverings, unless they have a medical exemption. 

“Last week the Prime Minister’s new coronavirus advice said anyone can now use public transport in England.  We’re here and ready to provide a safe journey at greater frequency and on Sundays too.” 

At there is a series of questions and answers about how to travel, the latest timetable information and a guide to making a mask.
