Bus service timetables and journey planning

The mandatory requirement to wear face coverings in law has been lifted. However, the government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.

If you know your bus route number use the bus timetable list to go to the buses page for details of times and fares or use the bus and rail maps to help plan your journey on the bus network.

You may be able to use one of the community and flexible transport services that operate in East Cheshire to complete your journey or the new go-too demand responsive bus service in the Nantwich and rural area.

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.

There are also other railcards available to passengers.
