Bus Detective

Get Out and About with Bus Detective!

Grab your magnifying glass and head out for a quizzical adventure on one of eight Bus Detective trails, all easily accessible using the NCT bus network and a £6.00 Grouprider ticket!

When you arrive, follow the clues and route map to work out the numerical answers. Look up each number in the Answer Table to find out which letter this represents. Once you’ve all the letters, write down the word in the answer box and visit our Travel Centre in the Old Market Square. Upon completion, you’ll be rewarded with your very own sleuth sticker to place in a Bus Detective passport. Collect six stickers for a fantastic prize!

You can pick up your Bus Detective Trails from the NCT Travel Centre or download them below and print at home.

Enjoy your day – there is no time limit on completing Bus Detective, so take in the parks, gardens and open space and enjoy a bite to eat whilst you’re detecting!
