CallConnect is a unique bus service whose timetable is not fixed but responds to passenger requests. This means its routes are different each day depending on the bookings made by passengers. Journey requests can be made by telephone or online via the OpenDRT Portal.
The service is designed to improve transport links for rural communities in the Oundle, Stamford, Peterborough and Thrapston area and for local journeys within Oundle and Stamford. (Please note we are generally unable to provide journeys where there is already a frequent commercial bus service).
Anyone can use the Nene & Welland CallConnect bus service for any reason and as frequently as required. The service is operated by modern, fully accessible minibuses and the service operates between 7am-7pm Monday to Saturday.
The CallConnect minibus will pick up and set down at designated locations in each village or town. Home pick ups and drop offs are also available for people who are unable to use conventional bus services due to age, disability or mobility impairment.
We also operate regular journeys from Stamford to Corby on Tuesday, Stamford via Rutland villages to Oakham on Wednesday, Stamford to Oundle on Thursday and Oundle to Stamford on Friday.
Registration to become a CallConnect member is FREE, but you must be registered to book a journey.
