Changes to the 153 Bus Route
Added at 00:05 on 18 April 2022
Arriva has recently made the decision to amend their commercially operated service 153 (Leicester – Market Bosworth), with effect from Sunday 17th April 2022.
The County Council has now considered the impact of this service change and any alternative provision in the context of its Passenger Transport Policy and Strategy (PTPS). This outlines the need to consider how residents can make essential travel journeys to the local centre for the essential purposes of food shopping and primary healthcare. It has been identified that residents will continue to have access to existing alternative provision on the below basis:
- Barlestone residents can continue to use the 153 in the Leicester bound direction, and will have access to service 159 to travel to Market Bosworth.
- Residents in Carlton, Barton and Nailstone will have access to the existing Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) service, providing a return journey to Market Bosworth three days a week. Details of the DRT service are available here:
- The above mentioned DRT service is also being extended to cover Station Road and Wellsborough Road, Market Bosworth and will be available for eligible residents to book
