Cheshire East Flexible Transport Service

From 5 August 2019, Transport Service Solutions (TSS) will take over the running of Cheshire East Council’s flexible transport operation, previously known as Little Bus. The new service will be called FlexiLink and 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 service will be between 9.30am to 2.30pm on weekdays, a strong preference expressed during recent public consultations. A limited service is available for group bookings between 8.30 and 9.30am and 2.30 and 4.30pm.

This change will allow the service to be combined with the current school transport operations of Transport Service Solutions (TSS), allowing both services to be delivered more cost effectively and safeguarding the future of the flexible transport service.
