Further savings can be made through buying monthly or longer season tickets from Ipswich buses and watch out for occassional offers.
NB. Fobs for free business journeys between Adastral Park and Bibb Way are still available from the Bibb Way security guard or Adastral Park reception upon request.
Current Timetable (from Mon 19 November 2012)
Do I still need to pay for business trips between Adastral Park and Bibb Way as I won’t have a rail ticket?
As it is a business trip you can pay and reclaim your ticket as you would your normal business travel expenses.
Plus we have introduced a process to travel for free for these legitimate business travel journeys. Just collect two tokens from either the Bibb Way security guard or reception, or at Adastral Park reception, and hand one in to the shuttle bus driver for each journey which will be accepted in lieu of payment. This scheme will be on trust basis and subject to occassional checks and review.
Will the bus stop anywhere between Adastral Park and the station?
Yes. The bus will now be able to stop, by request, at any of the public bus stops along Wherstead Road and this usage is anticipated to be low so as to not affect the timetable.
Can any non-BT or Adastral passcard holders use the bus to get to/from Adastral Park and pay the discounted fare?
Yes. The service to Adastral Park is a private contract beyond Bourne Bridge and the tax rules are such that we must offer the same fare to everyone who uses that service.
Where will the bus stop at Adastral once the public service commences?
The bus will continue to drop off passengers right outside reception at Adastral Park as this service is private and aimed at making the journey as convenient as possible.
Can I purchase a weekly or monthly bus pass for regular commuting to Adastral Park?
Yes, you can now purchase the full range of Ipswich bus tickets which offer greater value for money if you use the service regularly or can also use the other Ipswich town services. See the Ipswich buses fare page for current details all of which are valid for use on the 192 service.
