Book a journey

Since May 2017 Bromsgrove and Redditch Network has been running BURT, Bromsgrove’s community transport minibus.

20170509_084250 compressedYou can contact us on 01527 585893 or email burt@burtrides.org.uk. We’ll normally need at least 3 working days notice.

You’ll need to register to make any journey within the boundary of Bromsgrove District in our wheelchair-accessible BURT bus. Registration is easy and can be done over the phone or online here. It can be used for

  • Getting to the shops
  • Visiting family and friends
  • Leisure
  • Medical appointments
  • Making a travel connection to somewhere outside the borough.

BURT can pick you up from your home or wherever you specify from 8.45am, and the last set-down time at a destination is 4.30pm, Monday to Friday, subject to availability. At evenings and weekends we are hoping to start services for groups too – please let us know if you have any ideas for services you’d like to see.

It costs £2 (or £1 for concessionary bus pass holders) per single journey, plus 40p per mile payable in cash to the driver. If you make regular journeys and prefer not to handle cash we might be able to invoice you for your journeys – please contact us for more information. We will let you know the fare in advance.

BURT should not be used for medical appointments where the journey is eligible for the NHS Patient Transport Service. Speak to your GP, Health Centre or Medical Consultant for information on Patient Transport eligibility.
