Centrebus 113, that connects Oakham, Barleythorpe and Langham to Melton Mowbray, will be cut

A bus service that connects towns and villages will be cut but alternative services will still cover the route.

Centrebus service 113, which connects Oakham, Barleythorpe and Langham with Melton Mowbray will end on Saturday, December 21 after Leicestershire County Council reviewed their contracted services.

However, residents that use this service have been assured by Rutland County Council that they can still travel between these areas on the Centrebus 29 and Rutland Flyer 1.

These routes are supported by Rutland County Council and provide regular transport options between Oakham and Melton Mowbray.

They are unaffected by Leicestershire County Council’s review.

Chris Trail, director of places at Rutland County Council, said: “Rutland has previously benefitted from the Leicestershire County Council funded 113 Service, but is now in the unfortunate position that they are to cease the service as part of their review into passenger transport.

“As the majority of the 113’s route is through Leicestershire and there is no opportunity to continue the service within Rutland solely.

"But access to these routes is still available through the Centrebus29 and the Rutland Flyer 1 services instead.”

The Centrebus 29 travels between Essendine and Brooksby College, stopping at Ryhall, Stamford, Greetham, Oakham, Langham, Oakham Enterprise Park and Whissendine.

The service is available Monday to Friday and full service information is available by clicking here.

The Rutland Flyer 1 travels between Melton Mowbray and Corby, via Whissendine, Oakham Enterprise Park, Langham, Oakham , Manton, Wing, Preston, Uppingham, Lyddington and Caldecott.

A regular service is available Monday to Friday with a slightly modified service available on Saturdays.
