Call Connect

CallConnect is a unique bus service with no fixed timetable run by North Lincolnshire Council in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council.  Instead the service responds to passenger requests. 

Routes are different each day depending on the bookings made by passengers.  Journey requests can be made by telephone or online.

The service is designed to improve transport opportunities in rural communities and some market towns where there is an infrequent conventional bus service.

You need to register in order to use the service and further information can be found online at https://www.northlincs.gov.uk/transport-and-streets/public-transport-and-taxis/callconnect/ or by ringing 0345 2638139.
