Villager changes. V2 and V4 axed but V1 and V3 improved

Changes to the Villager services between Derby and Burton will see the V2 service axed, and Egginton left without a bus service, from 28th May 2017. However from the same date the V1 will double in frequency and will broadly cover the areas currently served by the V1 and V2. Evening and Sunday services will also be improved on V1 and V3 with earlier and later buses promised.

The V4 will be axed from the same date. Low passenger numbers are cited as the reason for the withdrawal of V2/4.

Yourbus expand in Derby

Yourbus will serve Alvaston with services 1/1a from February 12th. This follows the successful introduction of services 20 and 26 to Chaddesden and Oakwood last Autumn. It is thought the new services will follow a similar route to Arriva services 1 and 1a.

From the same date the Y36 in Nottingham will be withdrawn. Part of the route will still be covered by the re-routed Y5.

Gold cards will no longer be valid on Derby to Nottingham Red Arrow

Pensioners will have to pay to use the Red Arrow service between Derby and Nottingham from 1st July 2017. Derby City council has removed funding. Nottingham stopped funding journeys in the opposite direction early in 2016. There were also plans to remove funding for X38 journeys but this is not going ahead.
