What to do now?
You will need to re-register for ConnectBus by either downloading the app or calling 0345 263 8153. If you live in a village also served by the Lincolnshire CallConnect Service, your current registration number will still apply when using CallConnect services.
If you prefer to continue to phone through your bookings that is ok too (we love to chat to our customers) but you will no longer be able to book your journeys online through our booking portal.
If you currently have a home pick up arranged due to mobility issues or you live in an isolated location, please contact us on 0345 263 8153 and we can discuss this with you.
Tap 2 Travel - Top Tips!
Once you have downloaded and registered on the app simply:
- Enter your pickup and drop off addresses by moving the blue pin to the desired location or typing them in manually.
- ConnectBus will take a few seconds to check for available vehicles and connect you with the best one for your journey (we may offer you a few options to choose from). Select the option that works best for you and press ‘Book This Journey’. If there is a fixed route bus that will get you to your destination sooner, the app will offer you that option instead.
- If travelling with ConnectBus, we’ll assign you a virtual bus stop as your pickup location that may be a short walk from the address you provided. Be sure to check the app for the specific spot, and follow the dotted line to meet your driver! We’ll also provide the service name and vehicle registration number so that you can easily locate the vehicle.
You can book journeys up to a week ahead and with as little notice as 30 minutes subject to vehicle availability.
You can cancel through the app up to 30 minutes before your scheduled pick-up time or alternatively you can call our Booking Centre on 0345 263 8153. Our cancellation line is open between 7am-7pm Monday to Friday and 8am-6pm on Saturdays.
Not to worry, speak to our dedicated team on 0345 263 8153 or use our live webchat for help and advice.
If possible, it is important that you provide us with your mobile number. This will allow us to contact you by SMS or app notification with a more accurate collection time.
