About us

Suffolk Norse is a joint venture company between Suffolk County Council and Norse Commercial Services.

The company provides vehicles for a comprehensive range of passenger transport, from swimming for school pupils to training for drivers.

From depots in Ipswich, Lowestoft and Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk Norse provides home-to-school transport for Suffolk County Council, both to mainstream schools and special education schools across the county.

Throughout the year, Suffolk Norse also carries out a wide range of private hire work for school groups and customers across the county, and operates local bus routes.

Routes 310, 311, 311A, 929 and HK616

Please note that some of Suffolk Norse’s school/college day operations are now suspended until August 31, 2020, unless we are notified otherwise. We will post a further update here if services are to resume any earlier.

This will take effect from the start of operations on March 24, 2020
