What is The Robin?
The Robin, Gloucestershire County Council’s new on-demand bus service, is designed to serve residents in the two 2022-launch areas, covering Cotswolds (a northern section) and the Forest of Dean (a southern section).
What is it for
The Robin is designed specifically to provide transport links from close to people’s homes (for example, known bus stops) to:
- locations for onward travel, for example, to connect with the fixed route bus network; or
- to services at times when there is no other transport option.
The service will improve connections between rural areas which often have infrequent or no fixed routes available, increasing access to services and the wider transport network of our county, expanding access to employment, education, healthcare and shopping.
