Night Buses

Our NightBus services will run through until 3.15am every Friday and Saturday night to take you home safely after a night on the town.

Most NightBus services now also return back to the City Centre, with N4 and N34 also running every night of the week, except Sunday night / Monday morning.

Where do they go?

Our NightBus network covers most parts of the City, with the N100 serving Burton Joyce, Lowdham and Southwell. Check the map for your nearest service.
