First Bus Station Reviews

  1. Martha Says:

    Lowestoft Bus station is in a great location, set in the heart of Lowestofts busy shopping area. Perfect for stocking up on some shopping, then having some lunch or tea and then hop back on the bus and out of town.

  2. M Ricketts Says:

    Although i live in London. i will be on Holiday near Lowestoft for a week. But what Bus Service will i need from Kessingland Beach to Lowestoft? ….. You need to check for bus times in lowestoft. LL.

  3. Shaun Says:

    Good service, however, i cannot find prices at all, if you go on national rail enquiries it tells you prices of where you want to go, this, first do not tell you the price of a ticket and even when you phone, they cannot tell you the price. Bit bad but overall good service

  4. Imogen Radford Says:

    I also have had trouble finding the bus fare info anywhere – could it not be put on the site. If I look the journey up on National Rail I can find the info for this bus service, ironically!

  5. Ken Wright Says:

    I am desperately trying to find a bus from Lowestoft to Kessingland Beach. Preferably from lowestoft rail station.

  6. judith brown Says:

    One of our customer who was coming from Gt Yarmouth asked to be put off at Sussex Road (where we told her to get off)but instead the driver took her right into the bus station. She then had to ring us to find her way, as we are in St Margaret’s road, getting off at Sussex road would mean that she did not have far to walk. Instead she got off the bus at the station in the dark with her 5 year old son and had to ring us so we could tell how to get to us.
    This is just not good enough, drivers should help their customers to get where they are going not put them where they want to put them. I hope you will look into this for me.
