ConnectBus- New booking App

ConnectBus- New booking App

Dear Parish

We would like to share some IT development news about the CallConnect services in the Bourne, Stamford, Rutland and Peterborough area.

In 2020 we launched the trial of a new App that allows passengers a new way of booking, tracking and accessing the CallConnect bus service in the Gainsborough area. This App has proved successful and popular.

As the transport App software industry is developing rapidly and we want to be able to contrast and compare new and different apps for our successful and important DRT services so we are pleased to announce a new app – CONNECTBUS - exclusively for passengers in the Bourne, Stamford, Rutland and Peterborough areas

The ConnectBus is a refresh of the CallConnect bus brand to help launch this new app. The ConnectBus app is free and easy to use, passengers simply register on the app and are ready to go! The App and service go live on 15th September and bookings will be available from the 22nd September, 2021.

Letters have been sent to current customers and our dedicated staff have been trained in responding to queries and are ready to give help. If passengers prefer to make bookings by phone, that is still available by calling 0345 263 8153.

I have attached the flyer, twitter graphics and promotional pictures of the buses with new livery.

We have created dedicated webpages on our Lincsbus website -visit our website www.lincsbus.info/connectbus

If you would like to register to use the ConnectBus App either download the App from Google Play or Apple Store or call our friendly booking team on 0345 263 8153.

Kind Regards,

Transport Services Group
