Replacement service for Villager 2
Email from Chris Ward, Notts County Council

 Following discussion with Members a final timetable has been produced to replace the Villager 2 service from 24th July, a copy is attached for your reference. The final route covers as much of the current Villager 2 service as possible, maintains the peak time journeys to Nottingham but with the off peak journeys connecting in West Bridgford  where there are many options for connections to Nottingham. Peak journeys to Nottingham are also maintained through connections in Bingham with the Rushcliffe Mainline or rail services. We are hoping to introduce a ‘through’ ticketing agreement with both Trentbarton and Nottingham City Transport, details of this will be made available as soon as possible.

 I hope to be able to advise you who will be operating the new service at the end of June following a short procurement process, timetables and full information will follow as soon as possible after that, your help in circulating this would be greatly appreciated. We are initially looking to award the contract for 2 years to try and get some stability in the area, during this time I intend to review the service and will be inviting representatives from each Parish/Town as we have done previously. I recognise that this situation will cause some concern to your residents, we are however trying to minimise any disruption and maintain as much of the service across the whole area as possible within the budget available.
