Public transport

Most of Derbyshire's key towns and villages are served by buses and some by train.

Folding bikes can usually be carried on buses and trains which makes great door-to-door journeys.

You can check if your journey is possible by public transport using Traveline.

Train travel

Rail travel is usually the best option for journeys to major towns or cities and is often cost-effective if you book early.

If you're travelling a long distance for work, a completed rail ticket request form is required from CST orders, email However, if travelling 'locally', for example, from Matlock to Derby, buy your ticket at the station and reclaim through WorkPlace, which saves the £1.50 printing and booking charge.
