Council check: Lincolnshire County Council

Let's see what Lincolnshire County Council have to say about bus services on their patch.

They use the snazzy Lincsbus website, separate from the rest of the council's online presence:

Where do the buses go?

There's an easy-to-use interactive map of all bus routes in the county, including PDF enlargements for the major towns. You can't ask for more than that. 5 out of 5.


Times for all routes are easily available via the interactive map. 5 out of 5.


After such an encouraging start, it's a bit of a shock that Lincolnshire provides no information on fares or tickets at all, not even mentioning the operators' own tickets. As far as we know, there is no multi-operator ticket. Plusbus doesn't even get a mention, even though it is available in Lincoln, Grantham and Skegness. 0 out of 5.


First class maps and accessibility to timetables, let down by the complete absence of any information about tickets and fares. Lincolnshire County Council scores a total of 10 out of 15.
