Rutland County Council financially supports the majority of bus services operating in Rutland. The Council not only plans the routes but also sets the timetables and fares of each subsidised service.
Every effort is made to restrict timetable changes to set times during the year. All changes are advertised on-board the buses a minimum of 2 weeks before a change is introduced. If you are not a frequent bus user, it is advisable to check the details of your journey before travelling.
