The BBC report, that as part of cost saving measures, Hull City Council, will axe the Walton Street Park and Ride, redirecting users the newer Priory Park site instead. The Walton Street site is located near to the KC Stadium and is part of the Hull Fair site.
The Walton Street bus service, numbered 700, is operated by Veolia, and is the only major 'public service' operated by the former Alpha Bus and Coach operation. The operation, based in Hull does have some other public services, such as Sunday workings on the 350 (Hull-Barton-Scunthorpe-Ashby) and the 78/277 circular (Hull-Hedon) along with schools work and private contracts, but will that alone sustain the operation? Could it be the end for Veolia in Hull or will they secure new work as a replacement?
Veolia recently announced the closure of their Lincoln depot, and sold their York operation to Transdev last year.
