Phone and Ride
“Did you know there was a service that could take you on local short trips of your choice for very little cost, and they will even pick you up from your front door ?
As webmaster of Stallingborough DOT COM, I am always on the lookout for events, social gatherings, community projects, well anything really that will help our community to learn about something they may have not come across before. Today, one thing caught my eye. It was the Phone ‘n’Ride service which is run by North East Lincolnshire Council and Cofely
Let me explain what this excellent service is all about.
You can ride out into the sunshine this summer on one of the Red Phone ‘n’ Ride buses. Phone n Ride is the ‘on demand’ bus service operating within the whole of North East Lincolnshire. Why not take advantage of those light days by using the buses that operate Monday to Saturday from 7am to 7pm. Absolutely ideal if you want to visit one of the areas many attractions.
Residents of Stallingborough of any age can use Phone ‘n’ Ride for journeys to work, health, education, shopping and leisure pursuits. A family trip to Cleethorpes, a meal out at one of the local restaurants or a trip Immingham shopping, the possibilities are endless. The service will also be operating on the Royal Wedding Day.
Fares are competitively priced with a trip from Stallingborough to Immingham costing £1.30 and holders of a valid Bus Pass are entitled to use the Phone ‘n’ Ride service in line with the rules governing the scheme.
