#AYearOfBuses 247: indigo 24/7 Nottingham – Derby
It’s been a while since we featured a trentbarton route on #AYearOfBuses – and seeing as today is day 247, we’ve got a treat for you.
Indigo 24/7 (see what we did there?) runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week between Nottingham, Beeston and Long Eaton, with daytime and evening journeys continuing to Borrowash and Derby.
Indigo was born out of the famous ‘Rainbow’ family of trentbarton products, having previously been Rainbow 5 – or the purple one – in the lineup. In 2011, indigo became one of the country’s only 24/7 commercial bus services, and in 2018, it was upgraded with a fleet of Alexander Dennis Enviro200MMCs which replaced the previous fleet of high-spec Volvos.
