Residents in Langham and Barleythorpe who use the Centrebus 113 service to travel between Oakham and Melton Mowbray are being assured by Rutland County Council that they can still travel between these areas on Centrebus 29 and Rutland Flyer 1 services, following a decision by Leicestershire County Council to terminate the 113 service.
The change follows a review by Leicestershire County Council into its contracted services across Leicestershire, some of which, including the Centrebus 113, cross over into other counties.
The Centrebus 29 and Rutland Flyer 1, supported by Rutland County Council, provide regular transport options between Oakham and Melton Mowbray and are unaffected by Leicestershire County Council’s review.
“Rutland has previously benefited from the Leicestershire County Council funded 113 service, but is now in the unfortunate position that they are to cease the service as part of their review into passenger transport. As the majority of the 113’s route is through Leicestershire and there is no opportunity to continue the service within Rutland solely. But access to these routes is still available through the Centrebus 29 and the Rutland Flyer 1 services instead.”
Chris Trail, Rutland County Council Director of Places.
The Centrebus 29 service travels between Essendine and Brooksby College, stopping at Ryhall, Stamford, Greetham, Oakham, Langham, Oakham Enterprise Park and Whissendine. The service is available Monday to Friday full service information is available from the Centrebus website
