From Monday 30 January 2017, Citylink 1 and W4 will be replaced by two new bus services.
A new, more direct Centrelink Park and Ride service (operated by Nottingham Community Transport on behalf of Nottingham City Council) will run between the Queen’s Drive Park & Ride Ecohub, Meadows Way and the Railway Station to the City Centre, terminating in Victoria Bus Station. This new service will no longer serve Fletcher Gate and the Lace Market but will instead access and depart the city to the west of the City Centre via Maid Marian Way. This service will be operated with 13 new ultra-modern low emission electric buses and current city centre Centrelink bus stops will continue to be served following these changes
A new Nottingham City Transport Navy Line 49 will run between Boots Factory, Thane Road, Electric Avenue, Queen’s Drive, NG2 Business Park, the Railway Station and the City Centre. In the City Centre, buses will terminate with other Navy Line buses in the Old Market Square on Beastmarket Hill. Buses will also stop on Maid Marian Way and at Broadmarsh. (Existing stops on Fletcher Gate, George Street, Elite and Mount Street will no longer be served.)Navy Line 49 will run with double deck buses up to every 15 minutes during the Monday to Friday daytime (06:00 – 18:30) and will continue to have early morning and evening journeys to cater for shift patterns along the route, especially at Boots Factory. On Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays, there will be five journeys in each direction which will run at similar times to the current W4. For Experian and Electric Avenue, Nottingham City Transport will run more of their Navy 48 buses along the 48A route to provide up to 10 buses per hour to the Railway Station and the City Centre.
From Monday 30 January 2017, the Citylink 2 will be renamed the Ecolink and also be operated by electric buses. The route will change slightly. When returning to the City Centre it will turn left at Pennyfoot Street on to Bellargate.
