Stagecoach has altered the routes for bus numbers 36 and 37 so that the retail park – which homes Aldi, Van Hage, InflataNation and Hebden Dance School, among other businesses – is more accessible for all.
Darren Roe, managing director of Stagecoach East, said: “We are constantly listening to customer feedback and looking for ways to enhance and update our bus network to better support local people in the communities we serve.
“We are, therefore, delighted to introduce an enhanced route for our 36 and 37 services to provide a direct and convenient link to the Peterborough One Retail Park, especially in light of the new Aldi supermarket opening.”
The PE1 retail park currently has no empty units for the first time since its development, with the June arrival of Aldi set to double footfall to the site.
Associate director for Targetfollow, the company that developed the retail park, Paul Dunn said: “It’s testament to the success of all our retailers that we are now able to welcome new visitors to our fully let park by bus, whether they are enjoying beauty treatments in KAMU, new hairdos in Steadman & Co Hairdressing or even sharpening their axe throwing skills in Angle Axe!”
The number 36 bus, which services Holbeach Drove to Peterborough City Centre, will stop at the retail park between stops at Eastfield Regional College and Eye St Matthews Church.
The number 37, servicing Peterborough to Spalding, will stop at the site between Newark Sainsbury’s and Eye St Matthews Church.
Both routes begin at the temporary Acland Street bus station.
