The Call Connect bus service charity supported by the county council to link people in remote areas to bus routes is extending its opening hours in a pilot scheme.

Call Connect is starting a six month pilot this week to extend hours of service in the Cliff Villages and Sleaford area, Monday to Friday between 6.30am and 7.30pm and 7.30am and 6.30pm on Saturdays.

Ring up to a week ahead on 0345 234 33 44 or 01522 553143 to book a pick up.

Maria Lyon from CallConnect said: “In October, we extended the operating hours on some CallConnect services to meet local demand and improve connectivity.

“As a result, the 18M and 18B buses that serve Sleaford now run from 6.30am to 7.30pm, Monday to Friday, and from 7.30am to 6.30pm on Saturday. That means people get an extra half hour in the morning and an extra half hour at the end of the day.
