A bus-and-bike service is set to make more stops to help trippers explore Norfolk without using a car.

The BroadsHopper bus already carries 900 passengers a month, enabling them to leap off their seats on to their bikes which are stowed on racks inside and outside the bus.

The service runs between Acle and Blickling Hall, calling at points of interest including Salhouse, Ranworth, South Walsham, Wroxham and Coltishall.

From today the route will also stop at Aylsham Market Place, Wroxham Barns, Brampton village, Upton, Pilson Green and Fairhaven Gardens.

Norfolk County Council, says it hopes the changes will see passenger and cycle figures rise even further.

Tickets cost £3 for a day ticket (£1.50 concessions), £4 for a couples ticket (two adults travelling together), £6 for a family ticket (two adults and up to four children) and £10 for a 10 single trip ticket. Single fares and day return tickets are also available for short journeys. Fares are the same with or without a bicycle.

Tickets for connections to Yarmouth and Norwich can be bought on the BroadsHopper. Bittern and Wherry Line Rover tickets are also accepted, as are First's tourist tickets from Aylsham, Wroxham and Acle. BroadsHopper tickets are valid on services 12 and 12x operated by Neaves,
