excel - a new standard in travel comfort - arriving Spring 2020
And from the same date we'll be launching a whole new excel timetable, with lots of new travel possibilities, including:
- Fast buses up to every 30 minutes between Dereham and Norwich taking just 35 minutes, with extra journeys at peak times and new evening journeys.
- A combined daytime frequency of three buses per hour between Dereham and Norwich.
- New faster journeys between Kings Lynn or Swaffham direct to/from Norwich fast via the A47 Dereham bypass, operating up to every hour Monday to Saturday daytimes.
- A new timetable on Sundays...this starts a day earlier, on Sunday 16th February.
And to make it simpler to work out which bus will take you where you want to go, we'll be giving each of the different route options a letter - you can see these below...
A unique combination of a Scania Euro VI diesel chassis and stylish, modern bodywork from Alexander Dennis, we’ve worked with some of the bus industry’s leading designers, suppliers and manufacturers over the last two years to bring you a bus designed and built especially for excel. The Scania chassis, with its 9-litre engine, is designed to deliver outstanding performance, reliability, fuel economy and safety on longer and more demanding routes, whilst meeting the highest current industry emissions standards.
Build quality, ergonomics and style are all integral to the Alexander Dennis bodywork, which also incorporates some of the best comfort and safety features available on buses today.
As well as listening to the great feedback we’ve had from passengers, drivers and stakeholders all along the excel route, our research and development for these vehicles has taken us far and wide across the UK, with the aim of bringing together a whole host of features, some already established and some brand new, that will allow us to bring you a new standard in interurban bus travel.
So come along and give our new buses a try for yourself when they hit the road from Monday 17th February. Or keep an eye out between now and then...you might even catch a glimpse of one of them as we get them ready to bring you extremely comfortable cross country links!
