The skylink express route for people travelling between Nottingham and East Midlands Airport is to be more direct from 29 October 2017.
trentbarton is introducing a new and improved skylink express timetable, with the journey time between the airport and city centre under 35 minutes.
One stop is being withdrawn – Clifton Park and Ride. skylink express will continue to connect with the NET tram network at Wilford Lane, a stop introduced earlier this year, and with the rail network at Nottingham Train Station.
Tom Morgan, director of service delivery at skylink operator trentbarton, said: “skylink express launched in January 2016 and has gone from strength to strength.
“Since the introduction of the new bus stop in Wilford we have seen a reduction in the number of customers using the Clifton Park and Ride tram stop.
“Due to this lack of demand and the time it takes to serve the Clifton Park and Ride site we are withdrawing this stop and instead giving customers an even more direct service.”
skylink express runs every 30 minutes on comfy coaches featuring free superfast 4G WiFi and USB charging points so customers can stay connected during their flight.
skylink services are supported by East Midlands Airport, which has invested in public transport for over a decade and now serves more than 4.3 million passengers every year with more than 90 destinations worldwide.
More than 10,000 people work at or near EMA and a potential 20,000 new jobs are set to be created at the largest pure freight airport in the UK and at the businesses in the East Midlands Enterprise Gateway [EMEG] area in the next 20 years.
