Moorlands Connect ‘Gold Bus’ Service
‘Moorlands Connect’ was launched in September 2010. Operating from Monday to Saturday, there are now two service types (with effect from 5.10.15) – ‘dial a ride’ where the service is plotted daily in line with telephone booking requests and also a timetabled service. Bus passes can be used in the usual way. The 15-seater buses cater for cyclists, buggies & wheelchairs.
The service picks up from locations not only in the main Alstonefield village area, but also in Stanshope & Hopedale, in fact anywhere within the main operating area around community hubs including Ashbourne, Leek, Hartington, Longnor & Buxton. To book your journey, telephone the central booking office on 01335 342951. There is no need to book for the timetabled service. For more information please go to the Moorlands connect webpage.
