THREE new bus routes are being tried out by Ilkeston’s Tesco supermarket.

Operating Wednesday to Saturday, the hourly service will run from three areas to the store.

Philip Blair of PB Bus Marketing Specialists, said: “The added bonus is that passengers will be issued with a shopping voucher which can be redeemed in store.”

Route one will run from West Hallam, Kirk Hallam, Little Hallam and Hallam Fields, the second route will collect passengers in Awsworth and Shipley View and the third will pick up in Giltbrook, Eastwood, Langley Mill, Heanor, Shipley and Cotmanhay.
