AbsolutELY to become the number 15

Fri, 02/13/2015

With Stagecoach taking over the Norfolk Green AbsolutELY bus service in Ely from April, the service is to be renamed the number 15.

Last year, the service, which helps residents get to work, shop in the city centre or catch up with friends, had its financial support extended until February 2017.
With passenger numbers rising year on year – in 2012/13, the annual number of journeys was 40,285 and in 2013/14 this rose to 50,807 – East Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council agreed in Autumn 2014 to continue the service.
