Moorlands Connect

There have been further updates to the Moorlands Connect Demand Responsive service, including the start of Sunday and Bank Holiday journeys between April and September with effect from 2nd April 2022, and the launch of the Moorlands Connect booking app.

How to use - Moorland Connect

This is still a great way to get out and about, travel to work, school or college, or see friends and relatives in other villages without using your car.

moorlands-connect-busThe service is available for anyone who lives, works or visits in the area. There is no age restriction. We can accommodate people with wheelchairs, pushchairs or bicycles.
