From March 20th EYMS are making changes to services in the Market Weighton and Pocklington area, as previously noted here. Full details have now been announced.
The new EYMS X4 Market Weighton-York direct is as detailed here. The X46/X47 (Hull-Beverley-Market Weighton-Pocklington-York) sees extended journey times to improve reliability, while the Sunday X47 service is now operated commercially.
Service 744 (Bridlington-Driffield-Pocklington-York) and service 746 (Market Weighton-Pocklington-York) are retimed to improve co-ordination with the X46 and the new X4. Within York there is a revised route avoiding Tower Street. Despite what Traveline reports, the 746 will continue to serve the University of York.
Minor changes also impact on the 18A (Holme-York) and the 195/6 (Pocklington-York).
As a side note, why does the 744 still serve Dunnington which has the First/York Pullman 10 on a far higher frequency? Does it serve a part of Dunnington the 10 does not? The Pocklington-York corridor is rather complicated - the X46/7, 744 and 746 all have different routes making even headways between services impossible. Sending the 744 via the 746 route, serving the University of York rather than Dunnington would go some way to simplifying this.
