About the Villager Bus

Villager Bus (Sharnbrook) Ltd is a non-profit making organisation registered under the Cooperative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. We are run and operated by volunteers and provide transport facilities to town and village communities throughout North Bedfordshire via a scheduled timetable*.

We own and operate one bus which is designed for easy access. Anyone can use the Villager Bus and bus passes are accepted on all routes.

*(most operate monthly except for Olney which runs every Thursday and the Sainsbury's routes which operate twice per month)
