Hull-based bus company EYMS has announced that at the end of May it will be making its Beverley bus services better, in the biggest shake-up of buses in the area in decades.
The town will get a new dedicated Hull-Beverley bus service, Service 122, which will give North Molescroft/Butterfly Meadows and St Leonard’s Road/Copandale Road a direct bus to Hull. This means Beverley will now have four buses an hour to Hull, with buses to the city leaving Beverley Bus Station every 15 minutes during the day.
The new Flemingate retail park and East Riding College site will also have a bus service, with Hornsea-Beverley-Hull Service 246 re-routed past the development. This also means residents of the Flemingate/Beckside area of the town will get a new bus service direct to Hull.
The final big improvement will be a new route in Hull City Centre. All buses from Beverley will now take an extended route around Hull City Centre on their way into the city, so Beverley passengers can get off the bus outside Primark, right in the heart of the city’s shopping district.
EYMS Commercial Manager Bob Rackley said: “Beverley has always had an excellent bus service into Hull, but with the recent growth of the town we wanted to make it easier for people who live outside the town centre to travel. The new services mean that there are direct buses into Hull from North Molescroft and Molescroft, Swinemoor Lane, Victoria Road and Flemingate, so hopping on a bus to Hull will be so much easier.”
Beverley residents can find out more about the improvements, and pick up a new timetable leaflet and discount voucher, by visiting EYMS’s vintage Beverley Bar Bus, which will be in Saturday Market on Saturday 16 May and Wednesday 20 May, 10am-3pm.
Alternatively, the new bus times can be found in a leaflet coming through your door soon, by visiting the company’s website www.eyms.co.uk or by ringing BusLine on 01482 59 29 29.
The bus service changes come in from 24 May 2015.
