*** 2018 CHRISTMAS TIMETABLE *** Our 2018 Christmas Timetable and modified timetable for 27 December - we've tried to keep links to communities open. All services subject to fair weather of course! Check here or on our Facebook page for updates! ***

OurBus Bartons was established in 2016, by a group of dedicated volunteers responding to cuts that left their local community without public transport, and the twin spectres of rural isolation and stagnation looming. OurBus Bartons provides a scheduled weekday bus service along nine routes linking our local community with transport hubs in larger villages, health centres and supermarkets. After a successful first year, a second vehicle was added. OurBus Bartons is available to hire most evenings and weekends and is always happy to receive donations or support from volunteers!.
