Consultation on 730 bus service

730 Consultation:

We Want Your Views

Norfolk County Council are reviewing all subsidised bus routes in the East Norfolk area, including the 730 service, we are looking to put in place new contracts which should start in September 2015.

Any new timetable we come up with for September will aim to:-

  • Reflect past passenger demand
  • Improve journey times
  • Offer access to more locations
  • Offer suitable times for passengers to ensure it is useful, such as workers, shoppers and students

Therefore, we really do want to hear from you and get your views on this. Where do you want to go, when do you want to go, what would you like to use the service for?

This is our current thinking:-

Villages South of Acle:

The pick up times for the shopping journey would remain as they currently are.

On Wednesdays and Saturdays the bus service would remain as now, going to Yarmouth via Filby.

The 730 will not operate on the other days of the week as the rest of the week the Acle Flexibus would provide journeys at the same times to Acle where passengers can link to high frequency services to Norwich and Gt Yarmouth.

In villages where the 730 is not that well supported passengers would be required to pre-book on the Flexibus service.

There will be a year-round pre-bookable service to Acle for passengers who can transfer to services for work in Norwich or Yarmouth.

We may trial an additional pre-book journey into Acle operating between 1120 and 1200, should people only want an hour in Acle, or who prefer to travel later in the day.

Villages North of Acle:

From March 30th passengers from Flegburgh and Filby will be served by the Sanders service 6, this service offers work, college and shopping journeys to Gt Yarmouth. (see

Passengers from Stokesby, Runham and Thrigby may see a reduction in the level of the scheduled 730 service to Wednesdays and Saturdays only. However, part of the proposal may see a scheduled Friday service provided to Norwich.

The Acle Flexibus will continue to provide a variety of travel options 5 days a week in the area which passengers can use on a pre-book basis to Acle.

The 730 service would extend to Gapton Hall retail park and would depart Gt Yarmouth slightly earlier at 1320.

Please tell us what you think

Attached are the proposed timetables and information about the Acle Flexibus so you can see what your travel options might be.
