The Daffodil Line is a ground breaking community-led bus service. This is our story, so far.
In 2022 our local bus services were cut back dramatically. People in our area lost the option of getting around without a car.
We knew it wasn’t the future we wanted for our communities and something needed to be done.
We took our inspiration from local public transport pioneers of the past. When our communities wanted to be part of the new “railway age” back in the 188o’s local companies got together to build the “Daffodil Line” railway which carried local people between our towns and villages and took our famous wild daffodils on the first leg of their journey to market in London and Birmingham.
Fast forwa1d to 2022 and the Buses4Us Community Actwn G1oup was formed Local people, councils and businesses came together to start the new Daffodil Line bus service.
We raised start-up funding, planned the route and timetable, and set fair fares so that everyone can afford to ride the bus.
Our new bus service connects our local communities and helps visitors explore our beautiful corner of the countryside
– and see our famous daffodils – without needing to use a car.
Good public transport is essential for a fairer, greener, future, and we’re proud to
be a part of that.
