Stagecoach will be making changes to fares in Higham Ferrers and Rushden and we wanted to keep you updated with what's happening.
You're probably now in the process of taking a big breath and preparing yourself to ask, "how much are fares going up by"?
But it's good news! People will be paying up to 45% less for travel from Higham Ferrers and Rushden. We want a simple and easy to use bus network for people. Therefore, from the 1st August we're extending the Wellingborough MegaRider to cover what is currently the Rushden Lakes MegaRider (which will be withdrawn from the same date). More »
This means people can travel between Rushden, Rushden Lakes, Higham Ferrers, Finedon, Great Doddington, Irchester, Irthlingborough, Raunds, Sharnbrook, Wellingborough & Wilby for just £4.20 a day (currently it's £7.20 a day). A 7-day ticket will also fall from £24 to £15.
This is a huge bonus for those currently travelling on our services who will see massive savings.
Full details of the change can be found on our website at: https://www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/midlands/wellingborough-megarider » Less

Please see a message from Highways England about the Chowns Mill project below and have your say in the linked survey:
Customers are at the heart of what we do and we want to hear your views about how you think we're communicating with you about A45 Chowns Mill improvement scheme.
To give us your views, please complete our online survey. The survey should only take 5mins to complete. Your views are important to us and will help us improve the way we communicate with you. Or using this link in your browser https://forms.office.com/r/XLwqFdnSkz More »
Last year, we carried out the survey. Thanks to all those who took part. It provided valuable feedback which created actions, some of which we have listed below.
- Increase confidence that Highways England listens to and responds to concerns
We regularly discuss any issues that are raised throughout Public Liaison Officer and seen through monitoring social media. We've taken actions to address these and have summarised them in the monthly newsletters. We also carry out monthly independent drive-throughs of the scheme and we're now responding to customer concerns in around 3 days.
- Promote ways of contacting the scheme
Feedback from the last survey indicated that you wanted better promotion of how to contact us. We've put the Highways England telephone number 00300 123 5000 on roadside signs and regularly publicised the Public Liaison Officer's direct telephone number 0333 0124 596.
- Increase the use of social media for regular updates
We've increased oursocial media visibility by engaging with our partners in town, county and parish councils who share our information through their websites and social media channels. This helps to reach to a wider audience on social media. » Less
