First Buses

frequent links into Suffolk's county town

Our Ipswich Reds network runs frequent bus services from across South Suffolk into and around the county town of Ipswich.

There’s a bus up to every 30 minutes or better on our core services into Ipswich, which include our Felixstowe Flyers services to & from Felixstowe, our Mainline 66 to Martlesham and Kesgrave or Stowmarket Swift 88 running direct between Stowmarket, Needham Market and Ipswich. 

We also operate a network of ‘Village Links’ services, some with support from Suffolk County Council, linking many South Suffolk villages and towns to the north and east of Ipswich with the centres of Ipswich, Woodbridge or Felixstowe.  As well as providing direct point-to-point services into major towns, the services are also ideal for linking onto other services at some of our already busy hubs at places such as Woodbridge, Martlesham Heath or Felixstowe.  Most of these services operate around every two hours on Mondays to Saturdays, with journeys across the day designed to meet the needs of commuters, students, shoppers and leisure travellers with some services also including links to additional villages off the main service at the morning and afternoon peak times.
