Leicester Express – Timetable

A comment has drawn my attention to the timetable for the new Leicester Express service from trentbarton, which is now on Traveline. It consists of a single return journey, Monday to Saturday – the timings are as follows;

NOTTINGHAM, Broadmarsh Bus Station….. 1015

West Bridgford, Shops……………………… 1023

LEICESTER, St Margaret’s Bus Station…….. 1105

The return journey is as follows (the 1415 runs Mon-Fri, the 1515 Sat only);

LEICESTER, St Margaret’s Bus Station…….. 1415  1515

West Bridgford, Shops……………………… 1453  1553

NOTTINGHAM, Broadmarsh Bus Station….. 1505  1605

The journey time is 50 minutes, comparable with the stopping train services along the Ivanhoe Line, which take approximately 49 minutes. Nottingham to London trains which non-stop all stations (except either East Midlands Parkway or Loughborough) take only 29 minutes, however, with two operating per hour. This means 3 return journeys per hour are possible by train, throughout much of the day, with just one return bus service. The price could, however, be a key factor with the single fare on the train standing at £9.10 (off-peak).
