JustGo North Lincs, operated by Go-Ahead bus company East Yorkshire and funded by North Lincolnshire Council, will run throughout the latest national lockdown restrictions to support those making essential journeys.
Since it started offering rides in September, JustGo has enabled hundreds of teachers, NHS staff, postal workers, retail staff and other key workers living in rural areas across North Lincolnshire get to work.
JustGo is a demand-responsive bus service using a fleet of minibuses and the latest customer technology, providing transport where bus services are not available. Passengers hail a ride through a smartphone with the JustGo North Lincs app, which was developed in conjunction with tech company Liftango.
With just a tap on the app or a phone call, passengers can request their journey and choose where they get picked up, using local meeting points. The on-demand service enables essential journeys to work, education, shopping or to Covid-19 vaccination centres.
Demand-responsive buses provide a flexible solution for passenger journeys, helping people leave their cars at home and choose an environmentally friendly option.
JustGo is funded by North Lincolnshire Council and operates across the council area, with many rural communities now having access to safe and reliable bus services at times to suit them, Monday to Saturday.
The fleet of minibuses follows all social distancing regulations, with reduced capacities, regular cleaning measures and hand sanitiser on board. The buses also include free WiFi and USB charging ports.
Rides can be booked on the JustGo North Lincs app, available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, or by calling the booking hotline on 01482 592959. Rides can be booked four weeks in advance up until the day of travel, subject to availability. For more information, visit justgonorthlincs.co.uk
