Here's the newest bus service in Brigg - CallConnect - caught on camera in Cary Lane on Saturday. If you request a trip to our town centre, or pretty much anywhere else locally,  it's a case of Wilco from the helpful dial-a-ride staff.  Even Wilko in this case!
North Lincolnshire Council is currently trialling the service in the Brigg and Broughton areas.
You ring a number and the bus picks you up at a designated point near your home.  
It runs betweeen 7am and 7pm, Mondays to Fridays, and from 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.
You have to register to use it. Call  0345 2638139 or 0345 2343344.
After that, use it as often as you like!
We've heard good things about this service, which is proving useful to many people and not just non-car owners. Here's a link giving full details
CallConnect now operates alongside the long-established Brigg shoppers' bus service, which is very useful to older residents living on our larger housing estates. It gets them into town to do a spot of shopping and delivers them back to their part of town, purchases in hand, an hour or two later.
