We're Re-Branding!

1 month ago Tue 28th May 2024

Following the takeover of Central Connect in September 2023 we have been working hard to integrate the two operations. As we approach the final stages of this integration we've taken the decision to unify all of our bus operations under the Central Connect name. This includes services operated in the East Midlands and East of England. 

The change won't be immediate and the Vectare logo will continue to be seen on our buses and media for a while. However all new media and our vehicles will carry the Central Connect name in our revised branding style. Our drivers uniforms and ticketing will update in due course too. You may also have already noticed most of our social media channels have changed name too. 

Naming and branding aside we'll continue to operate our existing networks and services under the following regional names:

  • Central Connect East Midlands - covering Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Derbyshire & Lincolnshire.
  • Central Connect East of England - covering Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Norfolk & Peterborough.
  • Central Connect Essex & Hertfordshire - covering Essex & Hertfordshire (we really stretched our creative juices with that one we know!).

This does also mean that in Essex and Hertfordshire where services between the old Central Connect and old Vectare overlap there will be an integration in timetabling and ticketing. Those develops are nearing completion and all being well we're hoping to introduce them from the mid-summer service change on the 28th July 2024.
