Service 125

Castle Donington to Leicester via Coalville & Bradgate Park

Operated by Roberts Coaches

Supported by Leicestershire County Council

 

Service Information

 

In Castle Donington, Service 125 serves Hill Top, High Street and the Bus Station ONLY. 

This service was also due to serve Station Road, Trent Lane, Back Lane, Darsway, School Lane, The Green and Park Lane as previously advised at community engagement events.

These streets are not being served because:

 

  • The previous service (155) served these streets on route to East Midlands Airport. As service 125 does not serve the Airport, this section of route is not required.

 

  • The commercial My15 service provides access to essential facilities and services for residents of these streets.

 

  • Access to essential services for villages to the South of Castle Donington is retained by serving Castle Donington Bus Station on service 125.

 

  • The service 125 timetable would experience reliability issues if these streets were included in the route.

Service 33
Market Harborough Town Service

Provided by Leicestershire County Council

Operated by Centrebus 

Route Change 

The route of Service 33 in Market Harborough has changed. Please be aware that the new route has been adopted with immediate effect.

The route change is necessary as congestion, caused by an increase in parked cars, has meant that some streets have become inaccessible to buses.

The 33 will no longer serve Northleigh Grove, Logan Street, Highcross Street and Wartnaby Street. As a result, the bus will not call at the stop on Wartnaby Street adjacent to Morley Street.

 

New route

The bus will now travel in the opposite direction along Coventry Road. Subsequently:

  • The bus will not stop at Coventry Road outside St Joseph’s School
  • Passengers boarding the bus at Coventry Road Logan Street should now use the stop on the Welland Park side of the road

If you have any questions or queries, please call our Customer Service Centre on
