Back on Monday 30th April, Stagecoach revised services 1 and 2 in West Hull, with the main change being a disappointing reduction in the Saturday daytime frequency from every 10 minutes to every 15 minutes. Service 5 between Hull and Orchard Park is now the only Stagecoach service in Hull to have a Saturday daytime frequency of every 10 minutes. On the one hand not a drastic change, and still 'turn up and go', to me at least, but not a positive change.
The Saturday N62 service over the 2 route from Hull City Centre to Boothferry Estate, then extended to Hessle, North Ferriby and Brough was withdrawn at the same time. It had comprised departures from Hull Paragon Interchange at 2330, and from Hull Truck Theatre at 0000 and 0100. In it's place is the return of the N2, but not as a 'traditional' midnight onwards nightbus service. Instead the N2 provides just a 2330 departure from Hull Paragon Interchange, but now operating Monday to Saturday, including extending to Brough six days a week. On weekdays this is a welcome development as the last EYMS buses are at 2255 to North Ferriby and Brough (service 153) and 2305 to Hessle (service 57). However on a Saturday it means the last service from Hull City Centre is now 90 minutes earlier than previously, and for the Hull to Hessle section there have been buses after midnight on a Saturday night/Sunday morning since at least 2004 (maybe longer, I'm just going by my memory and timetable collection). Stagecoach withdrew all post 2330 departures in their April changes, leaving EYMS 106 and 107 as the only remaining nightbuses in Hull.
Monday to Friday as a result of the new N2, which replaces the previous 2330 service 2 from Paragon Interchange, the 2352 service 1 from Boothferry Estate is withdrawn, with the last departure now at 2330.
Times for various other journeys on the 1 and 2 were slightly revised at the same time, including a rather odd 40 minutes gap in the otherwise half hourly weekday evening service, between 1925 and 2005 from Hull Interchange on service 2, and between 1950 and 2030 from Boothferry Estate on service 1.
