Nottingham City Transport values all customer feedback. Please get in touch if you wish to make a comment, complaint, suggestion or praise a member of our staff. Your feedback is very important and it allows us to identify areas where we can improve the service we provide to you. If you let us know when something is wrong, we have the opportunity to put it right.

What Do You Need to Tell Us?

To respond to any customer feedback, we need you to provide as much information as you can. This is essential if it involves a driver because with nearly 830 employed, we need to ensure we identify the right one.

Details like the service you caught, the date, time, stop, colour of the bus are all useful. If you have a bus ticket, you will find the details on there. if you travel with an Easyrider smart card, give us your number and we can identify the bus from your travel history.

When giving us your feedback, please try to contact us within 48 hours of the incident.

What Happens with My Feedback?

All feedback is logged on our Customer Database. Your comments are referred to the Manager who has responsibility for the issue you are contacting us about and they will thoroughly investigate it. This will often include downloading the CCTV and audio from the bus so they can view exactly what has happened as well as talking to members of staff involved.

Once the Manager has investigated your comments, they will use the evidence and their findings to conclude if your feedback is valid or not and if it is, they will take appropriate action. Customer Services will then contact you to explain the Manager’s findings and we aim to respond within 10 working days of receipt.

What About Refunds and Compensation?

Customer Services review every case individually and any offer of a refund or gesture of good will will be included within their response. If you have incurred any additional costs, please let us know when making your complaint and provide any receipts you have.
