Gestingthorpe has become part of the area served by Arrow Taxis’ Demand and Response Transport services.

Gestingthorpe and the Maplesteads hve been added to the DaRT3 area.

As a transitional measure, our 13 buses each way hourly service, will be replaced by a Flexible Service of 6 buses each way with a roughly two to two and a half hourly interval.

At first this will be Hail and Ride on the core route Halstead, Wickham St Paul, Gestingthope, Bulmer, Sudbury Bus Station.

Booking is likely to become necessary after a few months, and the times may be adjusted. The time table is appended. Gestingthorpe departure times in Sudbury direction, and journey times in Halstead direction, are both subject to 20 minute variation.
