Warwickshire County Council has introduced a new bus service, named ‘IndieGo’, and operated by South Staffordshire Coaches. Travel is available from Shustoke to and from Coleshill, Water Orton, Kingsbury, Atherstone and local villages. The service operates from 5am – 11am Monday to Friday. Users need to register to use the minibus (0345 263 8139) and then book via the same number between 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday or 8.30am – 5pm Saturdays. Booking before the day of travel is recommended.
Local town and parish councils are also considering the funding of a ‘Ring and Ride’ service, operated by TJ Travel. This would be a free service targeted at older residents who wish to travel to Coleshill on Wednesdays or Fridays (albeit further days may be added during the year. (Full details of the service will appear when confirmed.)
