A new fast bus service from Sheringham and Cromer to Norwich city centre has been launched.
The new konectexpress 2 service will run up to every half hour at peak times and every hour throughout the daytime.
Konectbus bosses say the service will be 10 minutes faster than others as it bypasses Aylsham to make the route more direct.
It it konectbus’ first route in the North Norfolk area, as part of their strategy to help increase accessibility into Norwich for people living further afield in smaller towns and villages.
The company says it is ideal for commuters working in the city or Sheringham and Cromer residents looking to do some shopping ahead of Christmas.
Operations & Commercial Director Julian Patterson commented: “We’re pulling out most of the stops to make our new Sheringham and Cromer to Norwich service almost as quick as using the car, but without the cost and stress of driving and the hassle and expense of parking.”
The bus also took passengers directly into the city centre, dropping them straight to Anglia Square, Castle Meadow for Castle Mall or onto the bus station for Chapelfield shopping centre.
Weekly, monthly and annual tickets are available. For fares and timetables visit www.konectbus.co.uk or call 01362 851210. Passengers can also follow konectbus on Twitter @konectbuses.
