The county’s bus network is just the ticket to discover the area’s wealth of attractions, so why not use the bus to get out and about to explore what Lincolnshire has to offer?
Whether you’re out and about locally, travelling to work or planning a trip further afield, let the bus take the strain, while you relax and make the most of your travel time.
Our Explore guides show information on buses, walking and cycling, alongside places to visit, a map of the area showing transport routes and information on each of the towns covered by the guide.
Our Area Guides include timetables for specific areas, alongside a bus map of the main town and contact information for bus operators for Lincoln, Boston, Gainsborough, Grantham, Horncastle, Louth, Sleaford, Spalding and Stamford.
While stocks last these guides are available at post offices, tourist information centres and local council offices or contact your local bus operator for available information.

Bus Service Operator Grant (BSOG)
Since receiving BSOG funding from Central Government in 2013/14, Lincolnshire County Council has devolved BSOG funds to operators for supported services operating at the point of transfer and for which they used to claim BSOG directly from the Department for Transport. The level of funding is calculated on the same basis as that adopted by the DfT and seeks to maintain the same levels of supported service.
Any new supported services do not now attract BSOG funding from Lincolnshire County Council (unless specifically stated within the Tender Specification). Instead, BSOG funding is now being allocated to specific projects to improve bus punctuality and reliability. A current project is in Skegness and Ingoldmells delivering measures to improve the bus lanes and infrastructure along some of the County’s most congested bus corridors particularly during the holiday season.
