The town is encircled on the west and south sides by the east-west running A14. The westbound A14 leads to the M1 (London) and the M6 (Coventry & Birmingham). Eastbound the A14 continues to Cambridge and eventually the port of Harwich.

Rail

Midland Mainline runs a regular train service between London and Leicester/Nottingham, often with a stop in Kettering. Connections can be made in Leicester/London/Nottingham to reach other destinations.

A cheaper rail ticket to Stansted Airport can be purchased if asked to go via Leicester instead of London.

The town is served by many buses on both local and inter-town routes. Local buses are green and called Kettering connect. They operate at a frequency between two and fur per hour depending on the route. A timetable can be accessed online or from te tourist information in the town centre. Buses operating an intertown service tend to operate from in front of the town library on Sheep street. Again timetables can be found online or from the tourist information. The majority of these are operated by stagecoach and are coloured in their red, white & blue livery.
