From Monday 4th September, service 96 Northampton – Rugby will be revised. Following discussions between the council and Stagecoach all journeys will additionally serve Long Buckby station, where time in the schedule permits. This is to provide interchange facilities with the train service, and also to provide residents of the Station Road / Bakers Lane area of the village with better access to the bus service.
From the same date, 2 peak-hour journeys in each direction on Rugby town service 3A will be extended to / from Dirft, Crick, West Haddon and Yelvertoft. Funded by the Section 106 Agreement for Guilsborough Road, West Haddon this will increase the peak hour service between West Haddon / Crick and Dirft / Rugby to broadly half-hourly, and also introduce a peak-hour service between Yelvertoft and Dirft / Rugby.
Yelevertoft will have 2 buses per day Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays. From the Knightley Arms 7am / 8.19 am and evening 5.30pm / 6.30pm. Bus Timetable SEPT 2017.
The Parish Council have thanked Highways as some service is better than nothing, however, we believe that a service returning at lunchtime would be very beneficial.
