We’re improving the Northern Connector!

From Tuesday 18 April, a number of improvements will be made to the Northern Connector fleet:

- The buses will all be brand new, and larger, with more seats 

- Free on-board WI-FI will be provided

- Two bike racks will be provided on each bus, free to use for passengers. Find out more about bike racks, and how to use them.

- The new buses will be silver with the front of the buses blue

The route and timetables will remain the same.
