We're so pleased to announce the launch of a new shuttle bus service, running on Saturdays and Sundays in the summer holidays, which will drop visitors off right in the heart of Ferry Meadows.

‘Your Community Greenbus’ will run from Herald Way in Gunthorpe all the way to Ferry Meadows, calling at Paston, New England and Millfield along the way. The buses will run every 90 minutes from 9am – 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays from 20th July – 1st September 2024. The bus fare will £2 per person with under 10s going free.

This bus is being run by Vectare bus company but has been organised by Nene Park Trust, thanks to funding from The National Heritage Lottery Fund through the 5-year Your Community Greenspace project.

There is no current bus service that comes right into Ferry Meadows, making Park accessibility limited to those reliant on public transport. The aim of the Your Community Greenspace project is to make the Park more accessible to all and so by introducing this bus service, which stops in the main car park of Ferry Meadows, we're hoping to improve Park accessibility for those living on the other side of Peterborough and offering a sustainable travel option for all. 

This summer holiday bus service will be closely evaluated throughout the summer to see whether a permanent bus service into the Park is a viable option going forward. 

We are really pleased we can offer this bus service to our Park visitors this summer. Please spread the word far and wide about our ‘Your Community Greenbus’ so we can make sure it’s well used over the summer and we can continue to offer sustainable and accessible travel options to our Park visitors after the summer too.

How big is the bus?

It is a single decker bus which can seat 30 people. 

Is the bus accessible?

Yes! It can take wheelchairs and pushchairs

Can I take my dog on the bus?

Yes! dogs can travel on the bus with a £1 day dog ticket

Why does the bus not stop at the bus station?

We wanted to trial a bus service that travelled to the Park from parts of the city which are currently not well served for access into the Park. If successful we hope we can push for further bus services to the Park which will stop in different locations.
