The Stagecoach East Midlands Mansfield Miller number one service is to be extended on Tuesday April 23, providing a quick and convenient link to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet East Midlands in South Normanton.
Passengers can expect a frequent service, every 30 minutes, operating from Woodhouse and Mansfield via Sutton in Ashfield and Huthwaite, giving customers greater transport options for accessing the popular shopping outlet.
The new extended service will run on a single deck bus that boasts luxury high-backed seating and contactless ticket machines, making passenger journeys faster and more comfortable.
The bus will operate Monday to Saturday from just after 7am to 8pm, with a Sunday service operating just before 9am to just before 6pm.

Shoppers can pick up some of their favourite labels from brands such as Nike, Lindt, Crew Clothing, Joules, and GAP at the centre. It’s also home to several popular cafes and restaurants, including Wagamama and Pizza Express, and sees over three million visitors to the centre each year.
