End of the road for Premier buses

BUS operator Premier, which served Lambley, Lowdham, and Woodborough among other destinations around Nottinghamshire, ceased operating on Friday 25 January 2013. The company was reported to be seeking a new owner, but collapsed when none could be found.

The Red 7 route serving Calverton, Lambley, Woodborough, and Nottingham is to be taken over by Nottingham City Transport (NCT).

The No 6 route, operating between Bingham, Lowdham, Calverton, Woodborough, Lambley, Arnold, and the City Hospital, currently has no alternative service.

Premier also operated daily school bus services to the Colonel Frank Seely school. 701, 707, 801, 807, and 8021 routes have been taken over by AOT.

More comprehensive reports on the company collapse can be found on BBC News and the Nottingham Post.
