The daffodil line is a community led bus service connecting the market towns off Ross-on-Wye, Newent and Ledbury, and the surrounding villages and countryside.

About Us

The Daffodil Line is a ground-breaking community-led bus service. This is our story, so far.

In 2022 our local bus services were cut back dramatically. People in our area lost the option of getting around without a car.

We knew it wasn’t the future we wanted for our communities and something needed to be done.
