Dear all,

The tender process for the new 822 service has now been completed and the contract has been awarded to Yourbus who currently operate routes in to Nottingham from the Derby, Stapleford and Beeston direction.

I have attached the final timetable which now includes a later trip from Bingham towards Orston and also the extension of the last 2 trips from Friar Lane beyond Granby. As I have mentioned previously we will organise a follow up / review meeting with you all later this year, hopefully a representative from Yourbus will also be able to attend.

Timetable leaflets are currently being printed and I will arrange for these to be delivered to outlets used before 9including Bingham Town Council Offices0, if there are any specific points you think would be useful to drop these in to please let me know.

Kind regards,


Chris Ward
Manager, Transport & Travel Services
