You may be familiar with our yellow, green and blue Coasthopper buses, but you may not be aware of what a success story they are.
Set up from scratch in 1996 by Norfolk County Council and award-winning bus operator Norfolk Green, Coasthopper was the first regular bus along the fabulous North Norfolk Coast from Sheringham to Hunstanton for many years. The main idea was to reduce car dependency for access to the area, for visitors and residents, and it now provides a valuable and highly regarded boost to the tourism businesses along the coast.
Coasthopper is now one of the fastest-growing bus routes in the UK, and now carries over half a million passengers every year. In summer it runs up to every 30 minutes from Cromer and Sheringham to Wells, and on to Hunstanton with buses every hour carrying on to King's Lynn to meet the trains and buses from and to Norwich and Aylsham too.
Our buses are fully accessible, and low emission. You can see just how much CO2 you can save and help protect this fragile part of the world by looking at the 'go green' page. - if you haven't done so already, come on board and get a better, greener view of the North Norfolk coast, all year round..
