About Us

Buses4Us is a community action group set up in response to drastic rural bus service cuts in early 2022.

The neighbouring towns of Ross-on-Wye, Newent and Ledbury have always had close social and economic ties, and excellent public transport links. We had regular buses for over 70 years and before that a local railway, the daffodil line.

In spring 2022 the bus services connecting our towns and villages were axed with just a few week’s notice. causing real hardship and distress for many people in our communities.

On 2nd April 2023 after a year of hard work and with support from a wide range of local organisations, businesses and residents we launched the 232 Daffodil Line Bus service.

Our new service – the 232 Daffodil Line, will restore those vital public transport links for local people, and provide a great way for visitors to explore our magical corner of the country.

Good public transport is essential for a fairer, greener, future, and we’re proud to be a part of that.

If everyone who lives along the Daffodil Line takes the bus just once a month we’ll never be at risk of losing this vital
connection between our communities again.

Please support us if you can. 

Our Team

Current Campaign

Currently, we are working to reinstate regular bus services between the neighbouring towns of Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye and Newent, and the villages in between. 

Our towns and villages were connected by regular buses for over 70 years. These were discontinued in February, having ceased to be “economically viable” during the pandemic. Read More . .


We believe that good public transport is an essential part of a sustainable future for rural towns and villages. If bus services are to have a long-term future we need to do things differently.
