Rapid test buses near you

test bus

We’ve expanded our fleet of mobile COVID-19 rapid test and collect buses to make it even easier to get a rapid COVID-19 test where you live.

The new service provides testing kits for people without COVID-19 symptoms and helps you to take a test on site first to ensure you are confident to use them at home.

Our mobile test and collect buses are now operating in

  • Biggleswade
  • Flitwick
  • Leighton Buzzard
  • Houghton Regis

Testing is free and there is no need to book an appointment, just turn up. 

With around one in three people who have coronavirus showing no symptoms, regular testing is vital to help identify more people who have COVID-19 as early as possible and help to reduce the spread of the virus.

We recommend getting tested twice a week, 3 to 4 days apart.

Staff will be on hand to help people self-test, demonstrate how to do the tests at home and give away home testing kits.  There will be help on hand for those who might need it.

The testing is free, easy and quick.
