From 3 July 2017 the Barton Villager Saturday service will no longer operate. Passengers can use the CallConnect service. There will be a scheduled CallConnect journey from the villages into Barton at 0900 and a return from Barton at 1130. The CallConnect service can be booked for journeys at other times on a Saturday.I presume the vehicle usually used for the standard demand responsive CallConnect service will be used for this new scheduled service. Traveline East Midlands shows a 0900 departure from Goxhill to Barton Tesco via New Holland, Barrow St Chad, Barrow Market Place, Barton Market Place and Barton Station, arriving at Tesco at 0940, with a 1130 return from Tesco. This provides a basic Saturday morning 'shopping' service without the need to register and ring up in advance to use the demand responsive CallConnect service. Keeping the 260 'as is' would obviously be a better option, but it is better than what was initially announced.
