Travel Plan: Bus

Getting to Logistics North by bus couldn’t be easier. There are two standard services and a ‘Local Link’ service – a service you can book – has been available since April 2016. Travelling by bus is a cheaper and often quicker alternative to commuting by car, particularly at peak times.

Buses will run up to every 10 minutes during the day Monday to Saturday and up to every 30 minutes evenings and Sundays. Full information is included on the timetable available on the link below.
