Premiere Ceases Trading

Following the news this week that Premiere Travel were looking for a buyer it has now emerged that they have ceased trading.

Trent Barton (tb) and NCT have stepped in to cover services and both companies are offering to swap Premiere tickets for their own ones.

tb say that "they want to make sure that people are not left stranded and their pre-pay tickets are not wasted. We will accept and exchange valid Premiere tickets, provide extra buses if necessary and have teams available in Nottingham, Long Eaton, Radcliffe and Bingham in the next few days to help guide customers"

NCT will be operating two new services from Monday 28th January to replace Red 7 & Red 7.1, these are:
  • Service 47 Calverton – Woodborough – Lambley – Mapperley – Nottingham
  • Service 47A Calverton – Arnold – Mapperley – Nottingham
NCT say "We appreciate that some people will have purchased period tickets for the discontinued Premiere routes and to assist these passengers all current Premiere 7 day and 10 trip tickets will be accepted by NCT drivers on the bus for valid travel free of charge until and including Saturday 2nd February 2013. Just show it to our driver who’ll accept it for free travel on any NCT bus within the same area or on along a similar route"
