Introducing the Norton Connector Community Minibus Service running between St Peters Tesco and Worcestershire Parkway Station via Brockhill, St Peters Garden Centre, Norton and Littleworth Parish Hall.
The service starts on September 14th and buses will run four times each way daily Monday-Friday. See the timetable for stops and times. The journey from St Peters to Parkway will take around 25 minutes each way.
The Norton Connector bus has 16 seats. These will be allocated on a first come basis when you call to book a ride. There is room for cases, bags, folded pushchairs and folded wheelchairs. We regret it is not possible to carry passengers seated in their wheelchairs.
Please note this is a dial-up service operated by Worcester Wheels, a not for profit charity who are not allowed to take passengers who have not booked in advance. To use the Norton Connector you must be a member of Worcester Wheels. Lifetime membership costs £10 and allows members to use their full range of services by arrangement. So in addition to the Norton Connector service you can book either ongoing or separate travel to Worcester City, Worcestershire Hospital, Doctors, Dentists etc.
The Parish Council will cover the £10 membership fee for the first 25 local applicants who are not Parish Council members, staff or their families.
