Trent Barton cuts back Spondon Flyer and Sixes from January 2020

Trent Barton sixes services have a reduced evening service from January, as the enhanced evening services introduced earlier this year haven't carryied enough passengers. There will also be a variation to the route buses take in the evening.

Spondon Flyer is also being cut back from January. Daytime frequency reduced yet again from every 15 minutes to every 20. Ilkeston Flyer now operates every 12 minutes along the main road, with many passengers choosing this option instead. Spondon Flyer will also serve Willowcroft Road on its way to Spondon which will be a big bonus for many residents. There will be no evening service Sunday to Thursday,last bus at 19:30 (18:30 Sundays). Ilkeston Flyer offers an alternative Monday to Thursday, but there will be no service linking Derby and Spondon on Sunday evenings - although a 30 minute frequency has been maintained until now. You would expect an hourly service to be trialed first before a complete withdrawal?

Yourbus ceases trading

Yourbus ceased trading suddenly on Friday 4th October 2019, bringing an end to competing services in the Derby area. Most services that did not have alternative service provision have now been covered by other oprators, most under contract to Derbyshire County Council.

New timetables can be found on the council website, www.derbysbus.info.
