The Robin Bookable Bus Service Expands into South Cotswolds

Press release from Gloucestershire County Council:

Gloucestershire County Council is thrilled to launch the expansion of its on-demand bookable bus service, The Robin.

Department for Transport (DfT) funding helped launch The Robin pilot, which currently operates in the Forest of Dean and the north Cotswolds. This pilot is now expanding into parts of Tewkesbury, Berkeley Vale and the south Cotswolds thanks to extra DfT funding of over £1.5million over two years.

For those who haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet – The Robin is a local, friendly bookable bus service. Passengers search for their ideal journey and book a pickup and drop off location that suits them.

It’s affordable at only £2 per journey and connects passengers with transport links such as bus stops or directly to a location if there are no other transport options available.

The new areas will launch in the below areas over the course of three weeks. For specific areas served have a look on the website for detailed maps. Bookings are available the week before each launch date.

  • 3 June – Tewkesbury district
  • 10 June – south Cotswold
  • 17 June – Berkeley Vale

Cllr Philip Robinson, cabinet member with responsibility for buses, said: “It’s fantastic to see The Robin expanding into new areas. I’ve met many people who have benefited from our bookable bus service. It really can change people’s lives in rural areas by giving them access to employment, education, healthcare or entertainment.”
