Lincolnshire Christmas bus service relaunched with more journeys

Following the success of last year’s ‘Santa Sundays’ bus service, Lincolnshire County Council is relaunching the project during November and December.

The Love Sundays CallConnect bus service, formerlly Santa Sundays, will run for six Sundays starting from November 16.

The service can be used by anyone, no matter their age, status or reason for travelling.

Two special Sunday shopper services – between Gainsborough and Lincoln and Stamford and Peterborough – will also be available on a pre-bookable basis.

The service will operate from 9am to 5pm and journeys can be booked from Monday, November 10 for the first Sunday of operation.

The CallConnect Booking Centre will also be fully open on the six Sundays from 9.30am to 3.30pm for the Lincolnshire area and 10am to 3pm for the Stamford and Peterborough area.

Same-day bookings will also be available subject to availability.

The demand-responsive CallConnect bus service already helps people of all ages to travel around the county.

To find out more about CallConnect or the ‘Love Sundays’ scheme, contact Lincolnshire CallConnect on 0345 234 3344, or 0345 263 8153 in the Stamford and Peterborough area.

CallConnect Manager Paul Sanders said: “We are delighted to be able to provide the service again this year, and due to last year’s popularity we’re offering more Sundays than before.

“We’d also encourage people who use time-tabled bus services during the week but don’t have access to a Sunday service to use our demand-responsive buses.”
