From Monday 2nd September, EYMS's 0900 weekday service 0900 from York to Pocklington will instead start in Newton on Derwent at 0930.
The 0900 is a slightly odd journey, with no return journey available from Pocklington on Mondays and Thursdays. As it is a commercial journey on a mainly tendered route I guess it may have been a 'positioning journey' back to Pocklington depot for a vehicle that had worked a morning peaktime service into York on another route? The new 0930 will be even more odd however as a vehicle will have to position 'dead' to Newton on Derwent, and there isn't a same-day return service to Newton on Derwent on any day of the week (The 1240 Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 195 from Pocklington runs only as far as Sutton on Derwent).
The 195 also has another odd journey - a Tuesday only 1255 Newton on Derwent to York for which the vehicle must have to position 'dead' to Newton on Derwent to operate the service.
Another change sees the Saturday 0705 Pocklington-York and 1740 return renumbered from 195 to X36 - the X36 is the number of the weekday equivalent operated by Transdev. I don't know if these means the Saturday journeys have become tendered rather than commercially operated? Or if EYMS have just decided to make the change themselves?
