Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry is celebrating the success of a campaign to improve bus services in Toton with a new service to replace the Toton Connect.
Notts County Council have announced they will be using their Blue Bird Minibuses to run a service between 10am and 2pm in Toton with stops serving residents throughout the area and connecting them to Tesco’s and the West Point Shopping centre. The service will run every half hour from Monday to Saturday.
“The old Connect service was cancelled last year and constituents were rightly concerned. I had a meeting with residents at Lombardy Lodge and as a result met with Notts County Council. They have been looking at how they can use their mini buses more efficiently. Vehicles are used to transport youngsters and other people with special needs to schools or day centres but then spend most of the day in the garage. This scheme will use those buses to provide a real service to residents in Toton” said Anna.
“I am delighted with this service and it’s been a pleasure to work with local County Councillor Richard Jackson and Toton Borough Councillors Marilyn Hegyi and Halimah Khaled so we use public facilities more intelligently and provide a real service to people in Toton. It is now vital people use the service or they will lose it!”
The new service begins on November 26th and will run along Nottingham Road, Ranson Road, Swiney Way, Stapleford Lane, High Road, Portland Road, Carrfield Lane, Banks Road, Epson Road, Seaburn Road, Whitburn Road, Spinney Rise, Darley Avenue, Joyce Avenue, Woodstock Road, Stapleford Lane, Swiney Way and Nottingham Road.
