TIMEkspressen (Time Ekspressen means "Hourly Express") is an intercity coach brand used by Nettbuss on 9 routes in Norway. The coaches are usually operated at one hour headway, but some routes have higher frequency in rush hour and lower frequency in the weekends.
Several of the routes operated as TIMEkspressen compete directly with commuter and regional trains run by Nettbuss' owner, the Norwegian State Railway, including on the Kongsvinger Line, the Randsfjord Line, the Trøndelag Commuter Rail, the Vestfold Line and the Østfold Line.
The brand was originally started by Øst-Telemark Automobilselskap in 1997 through the company TIMEkspressen Telemark on the route Notodden–Kongsberg–Oslo. In 1998, Nettbuss bought both companies and started developing the brand on other areas served by Nettbuss.
From May 2013, line numbers are preceded by letters "TE". Only major intermediate stops are mentioned.
