Public transport is taking a new twist in Northamptonshire as passengers will be able to book a bus to pick them up.
Bus stops will still be used by passengers can decide the time
The Corby Star on-call service, which is launched in March, can be booked by calling a free-phone number.
Passengers can say when they want to be picked up and from which designated destination in the town.
The service will operate from 0730 to 1730 GMT, Monday to Saturday, but will only pick up passengers at special bus stops on selected routes.
The £500,000 scheme will be operated by Stagecoach with backing from county and borough councils and Catalyst Corby.
Adult fares would be £1 while children and senior citizens would be charged 50p. Tickets last all day and can be used on as many journeys as necessary.
Jim Wade, of Northamptonshire County Council, said the scheme would be a step forward for public transport in the town.
"The on-call service is an innovative approach aimed at matching passenger demand to bus service supply," he said.
"We hope it will provide real choice for passengers."
The bus will operate three journeys each hour as will call at destinations when there is a booking.
Funding was provided through the government's Urban Bus Challenge scheme.
