Across the county there are various taxibus services which provide affordable travel at times of day when it is not possible to offer a regular bus service. These include services for shift workers and some local routes linking villages and towns.
Who is the taxibus service for and how does it work?
Taxibuses operate at set times with no restrictions on who can use them. Sometimes journeys have to be pre-booked and if there are no bookings, the service won't run. If other passengers are making a similar journey to you then you will share the taxi.
Please see the individual services below for more details about the journey routes and times and how to book them.
