Welcome to the Daffodil Line!

Daffodil Line map route

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.

Step on board and discover our fabulous corner of the country.

The Timetable

The Daffodil line operates a 2-hourly service between Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye 7 days a week. There is an evening service on Fridays and Saturdays. Please see below for full timetable details.

The bus operates a “request stop” service and will stop anywhere that is safe, even if there is no official bus stop at that location, just let the driver know where you would like to get off.

The Fares

We aim to keep fares low so that everyone can afford to ride the bus.

£2 – Standard adult singles, to anywhere along the line.

£1 – Short hops, including Ledbury Station to the town centre.

£3 – Sunday takes anywhere, all day.

£1 – Dogs

Concessionary passes accepted.

The Route

From bustling market towns and sleepy villages to rolling countryside and hidden gems there is so much to explore along the way.

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.
