BACT 581 Village Feeder Bus Service - Bungay/Beccles

BACT community transport, in partnership with Norfolk County Council, will start a scheduled feeder service from various villages (see below) to compliment Simonds 581 service at earlier and later times from 24th April 2017, Monday to Friday.

The bus starts at Bungay at 7.04 and 1704 and makes it way to Ditchingham and then on to Beccles via Broome, Ellingham, Kirby Cane, Geldeston and Gillingham, arriving Beccles at 0735 and 1735. The route then runs in reverse finishing at Bungay 08.31 and 1836.

The route takes in the rural villages at earlier and later times, where there is currently no bus provision, to give connections to other services (First X2, Borderbus 146) for onward travel to Norwich and Lowestoft for workers and students as well as offering an additional link to the Market towns of Beccles and Bungay.

Anyone can use the service and you can even flag the bus down in between bus stops and our friendly bus driver will always stop for you, as long as it is safe to do so.

Fares will initially be free, while passenger numbers are assessed, but it is planned that they will be introduced at a later date.
