Following a review earlier this year, East Yorkshire bus company has announced some changes to its services from 4 September 2022.
For weekend visitors to Hull, there is good news – the city’s Old Town and Marina will be easier to access during the afternoon on Saturdays thanks to more buses looping around the city centre.
An additional early morning bus will run between Hull and York during weekdays under the new improved Service X46 & X47 timetable. The 45 & 46 services have also been revised to align with these new times and to improve the quality of the service.
The timetables for Services 23, 24 and 25 will also change, as well as extending Service 23 through to Molescroft, restoring the connection that the former Service 122 provided.
There will be extra Service 153 journeys in the morning and evening, giving better travel options to those travelling between Hull and Swanland.
Travellers between Hull and Swanland will have more options for travel in the morning and evening thanks to extra Service 153 journeys.
The routes between Anlaby and Bridgehead Business Park as well as Services 151 & 152 will no longer serve Willerby Parkway due to people’s changing travel habits across the region. The X28 service will also be withdrawn.
Bus Services Changes As A Result Of People’s Changing Habits
X28 will also be withdrawn along with this service. Despite this, service 128, which runs every two hours between Scarborough and Helmsley, will remain in operation.
East Yorkshire’s Area Director, Ben Gilligan, had this to say:
“Following two years of change to people’s travel patterns, which were greatly accelerated by the pandemic, we have seen an overall reduction in the usage of bus services.
“In addition to this, the costs of doing business have increased in many areas, meaning that we have had to make some reductions to frequencies in various parts of our network in order to maintain the viability of our business.”
He said: “Despite this, we have also been able to deliver improvements in some parts of our network, as well as restoring frequencies on Service 56 and 57 which had previously been reduced at the start of summer.”
