Bus service timetables and journey planning

You may be able to use one of the community and flexible transport services that operate in East Cheshire to complete your journey.

If you are of eligible age or disabled you may qualify for a senior or disabled persons bus pass or senior and disabled persons railcard.

Little Bus East Cheshire Flexible Transport Service

D&G Bus

Little Bus East Cheshire Flexible Transport Service

Little Bus is a ‘demand responsive’ transport solution which provides an alternative means of travel for older and disabled people. All journeys must be pre-booked. If you wish to start using the service, please call D&G Little Bus on the booking line number 0845 077 9110 (09:30am–12:30pm Monday to Friday) to register your details.

From August 2019, Transport Service Solutions (TSS) will take over the running of Cheshire East Council’s flexible transport operation, currently known as Little Bus. The new service will continue to operate across the borough and will ensure support for residents who are disabled, over the age of 80, or who live beyond the reach of any other public transport.

The core hours of the new flexible transport service will be between 9:30am and 14:30pm on weekdays, a strong preference expressed during recent public consultations. This change will allow the service to be combined with the current school transport operations of TSS, allowing both services to be delivered more cost effectively and safeguarding the future of the flexible transport service.

More information about the new arrangements for the flexible transport service will be available shortly.

The current "Little Bus" service will continue to be run by D&G Bus until August and discussions are currently taking place regarding staff who will be offered the opportunity to transfer to Transport Service Solutions.
