Positive feedback and good passenger numbers have been reported for Swaffham’s new Flexibus service.
The “ring and ride” service started taking passengers to and from the town on Monday, September 2.
Supported by Norfolk County Council, the service was the sixth of its kind to be set up in the county and the first in West Norfolk.
A county council spokesman said this week: “The new bus service has operated successfully over the first few weeks.
“Early indications show that passenger figures are good with between 170 and 200 passengers per week so far.
“The feedback we have received has also been positive so far.”
Villages covered by the Flexibus include the Lexhams, the Raynhams, the Dunhams, the Weasenhams, Great Fransham, Rougham, South Acre, West Acre, Sporle, Tittleshall and Helhoughton.
Swaffham councillor Paul Smith said: “It may be early days yet and perhaps the Flexibus is not yet being as fully utilised as it might be.
“As people become more familiar with it and its reputation spreads, it should become a more popular option.”
Mr Smith said he had been impressed by the flexibility of the service.
“Rather than dropping someone at a single bus stop in a village, it will be able to collect them from their driveway and drop them back.
“That degree of flexibility is very useful and hopefully the new service will go from strength to strength,” he said.
To book a journey, please phone 0300 1231145 between 9am and 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

The Flexibus is fully accessible with space for wheelchairs, buggies and shopping.
