From Tuesday (2 May) two bus services will be merging to create an improved service to Nottingham Business Park and Glaisdale Parkway Industrial area

The new LocalLink L2 bus service combines parts of both the WorkLink W3 and LocalLink L33 bus services and will also provide a new daytime service to the Woodhouse Park housing development.

This does mean that the L2 will no longer serve the sections of the previous L33 route between Assarts Farm, Phoenix Park and Bulwell.

People in Bulwell who previously used the L33 LocalLink will still be able to travel  to the Queens Medical Centre by using the tram or the commercial bus network. The number 35 for example continues to connect Bulwell to the QMC. Passengers wishing to travel to Phoenix Park can continue to make this journey by using the tram.

Cllr Nick McDonald, Portfolio Holder for Business, Growth and Transport, said “These changes mean more buses will serve Nottingham Business Park and Glaisdale Parkway Industrial estate during peak times and throughout the day, plus people in Woodhouse Park will benefit from improved transport links too.

“Due to dwindling council budgets we have to look at different ways of providing top quality transport and these changes on the whole will benefit a number of residents and workers by giving them better access to public transport.”

This service will be operated by Nottingham Community Transport on the behalf of Nottingham City Council with brand new electric buses which help to reduce local air pollution. Plus a trip with a Robin Hood Pay As You Go Card will only be £1.
