Transdev 36 to Sutton Upon Derwent

From tomorrow, Monday 28th April, Transdev York service 36 (a City of York Council tendered service?) between York and Elvington is extended to Sutton upon Derwent in the East Riding of Yorkshire. By extending the 36, the village will benefit from a significantly improved service; 5 journeys will operate from Sutton upon Derwent into York, with three return journeys Monday to Saturday daytimes. Peak time links will continue to be provided by the X36, and the 195/196 continue to provide some additional daytime services on certain days of the week.

From reviewing the new timetable, it seems that service 36 will have a 30 minute layover in Sutton Upon Derwent. Could be the 36 be further enhanced by using these 30 minutes to serve additional villages, such as Newton upon Derwent ot Melbourne, delivering significant enhancements to these villages bus services? Additionally extending the 36 to Newton upon Derwent could enable the 196/196 to eliminate their 'detour' to the village (except for maybe a Pocklington shopping link on certain journeys); the 195 in particular is already a lengthy journey.
