Bus services

As a result of severe budgetary constraints Northamptonshire County Council will be withdrawing its transport subsidy from July 2018, and as a result a number of bus services will cease to operate. 


Community Transport through DACT

Daventry Area Community Transport (DACT) may be able to provide community transport via a local travel club so if you are part of a local community group and require transport please contact them. Some Parish Councils and Good Neighbour Scheme coordinators are also looking at setting up travel clubs with DACT so as they may also be able to assist you.
