A bus operator has increased its prices on some of its routes through Derby and Nottingham.

Trent Barton announced its single fares will rise by 10p, while “2trip” return tickets will go up by 20p. The hike came into force on Sunday.

Among the routes affected are:

  • i4 – Derby, Chaddesden, Spondon, Borrowash to Nottingham
  • Rainbow One – Alfreton and Ripley to Nottingham
  • Indigo – Derby, Long Eaton and Nottingham
  • 20 and 21- Heanor to Nottingham
  • Rapid One – Ripley and Heanor to Nottingham
  • 1A – Ripley to Heanor


A spokesman for the bus operator said: “We understand that increases to fares are never good news, and the decision was not taken lightly.

“These latest changes will enable us to invest in our buses, their features and latest technologies, making sure we remain a really good bus company.”

Meanwhile, several timetables changes have been made to some routes. Evening journeys on the Amberline route between Derby and Hucknall have been scrapped. The service launched last year, but the firm says it has not had enough demand.

The Ilkeston Flyer, which connects the town to Derby, will now be operating journeys every 15 minutes. Some minor changes have been made to the Keyworth Connection route between the Rushcliffe village and Nottingham.

Further details on changes in Nottingham are available on the company’s website.
