Introducing 'Village Links' from Ipswich Reds - from 1st September 2020
We're delighted to announce that from Tuesday 1st September 2020, we will be launching a brand new network of services - Village Links - linking many South Suffolk villages and towns to the north and east of Ipswich with the centres of Ipswich, Woodbridge or Felixstowe.
Many of these services are operated with funding with Suffolk County Council and have been designed to build on a number of contracted services that were already in place operated by a number of operators, including First Eastern Counties. As well as providing direct point-to-point services into major towns, the services are also ideal for linking onto other services at some of our already busy hubs at places such as Woodbridge, Martlesham Heath or Felixstowe.
Most services operate around every two hours on Mondays to Saturdays, with journeys across the day designed to meet the needs of commuters, students, shoppers and leisure travellers with some services also including links to additional villages off the main service at the morning and afternoon peak times.
The services included are:
|Village Links 59||Ipswich - Chelsworth Avenue - Rushmere St Andrew and onto Playford & The Bealings (one journey in each direction)||around every hour - Monday to Saturday off peak only|
|Village Links 70|70A||Ipswich - Tuddenham St Martin - Grundisburgh - Woodbridge
with some journeys including Charsfield - Dallinghoo - Bredfield - Hasketon
|around every 2 hours - Monday to Saturday|
|Village Links 71||Orford peak journey only - Sutton Heath (Rock Barracks) - Melton Rail Station - Woodbridge (for buses to Ipswich or Felixstowe)||around every 2 hours - Monday to Saturday|
