Bolsover District has a number of operators running bus services within its boundaries. For more detailed information and timetables please use the Public Transport in Derbyshire website where you can search by bus number or location.
You can get information on train timetables, fares and disruption through the National Rail or Trainline websites. We also have four stations (Whitwell, Creswell, Whaley Thorns and Shirebrook) within the District which serve the Robin Hood Line. You can also download the free Derbyshire Train Times booklet which contains the timetables of all the train services in Derbyshire, both local services and long-distance trains.
Gold Card is our travel, discount and library card for older people and people with certain disabilities.
Free bus travel applies to trips on local buses anywhere in England at off-peak times. Off-peak is after 9.30am and up to 11.00pm weekdays and at anytime weekends and bank holidays. However, free bus travel does not apply to long-distance express services (such as National Express services), special tours and excursions, nor does it apply in Wales and Scotland.
Before 9.30am weekdays all Gold cardholders will have to pay full fare on the bus. Free bus travel also applies to community transport dial-a-bus services within Derbyshire and Derby City, but this is only available to Derbyshire Residents (Gold Cardholders).
Further information on how to apply is available on the Derbyshire County Council website.
