Norwich Bus Station Ticket Desk Saved!

The planned closure of Norwich Bus Station ticket desk from tomorrow has been averted following an eleventh hour takeover bid by coach operator National Express.

Norfolk County Council had planned to close the desk as part of their cost cutting measures but the ticket office will be taken over by National Express.

From Monday 4th April National Express will take over opearation of the ticket desk, opening between the hours of 9am and 5pm Monday to Saturday - they will initially sell tickets for their own services plus tickets for Norwich Park & Ride, First and Chenary Coach Tours - it is hoped that tickets for other operator services can be sold in the future.
