Kettering Catcher is a flexible bus pilot scheme in Kettering, Northamptonshire. Subject to vehicle and driver availability, we are able to take bookings and operate a pre-booked minibus service .
The Public Minibus Service
We’ve looking to start a four-week trial in September, in preparation for a roll-out to cover more villages afterwards. We’ll announce further details including the route and fare, once it’s been confirmed.
Create your route!
Our service is flexible, meaning that anyone can create their own bespoke service to anywhere within the permitted area. However, since our scale is small, we’ll prioritise services or trips which benefit more users. Therefore, we suggest users to try grouping themselves before contacting us.
How it works
Using our service is as easy as one-two-three!
Please help us get the ball rolling!
We’ve written to some Parish Councils inviting them for collaboration. If you think this is an good idea and you want to have it, speak to us or tell your parish Councillors! We look forward to meeting and serving you!
*We’ll observe social distancing and impose a reduced capacity until further notice, to ensure the health and wellbeing of our users and to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Group travel / Bus hire
Businesses and organisations within the area covered are able to book on behalf of their users and clients. Simply pool your users up, get them organised and notify us to see if a vehicle is available. Holders of bus pass go free within the service area!
For destinations out of the area of service, we’re able to operate as an excursion or minibus hire. Perfect for family outings or even airport transfers.
