Lowdham gains late-night bus service

N100 service runs three times each Friday and Saturday night

Nottingham City Transport has added a night bus service from the city centre to Burton Joyce, Lowdham, and Southwell following a successful online campaign. The N100 service begins operation this week with departures at midnight, 01:15, and 02:30, on Friday and Saturday.

Buses pick up at King Street (stop K1), Victoria Centre (V2) and Boston Street, and run non-stop to Nottingham Road in Burton Joyce. They then call at all stops through to Southwell. The non-stop portion means the service should not fill up with short-distance travellers.
Single journeys cost £5, although a £6 Network Rider return can be bought on the bus.

The addition of the service follows a campaign on Facebook, with the creation of a group called NCT Pathfinder N100 – we want a night bus! The page, created by Lowdham resident Roxie Hickling, attracted over 780 members and appears to have been decisive in the re-establishment of a night bus.

In March, NCT wrote to Hickling that the previous service had been discontinued after “regular assaults on our drivers and vandalism to our vehicles“.
