Bus firm announces changes to times and routes of Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough services
The biggest bus operator in Northamptonshire has announced a shake-up to 17 of its routes and timetables on journeys to and from Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough.
The changes to Stagecoach journeys will come into effect from January 5.
The decisions come after the company held a major review of its network in September.
"Over this period detailed analysis has taken place to review passenger numbers on each route and ways of tackling services which are not commercially viable," a statement from Stagecoach reads.
