EYMS to operate between Goole and Scunthorpe from September

Last week I posted Sweyne Coaches's VOSA cancellations for their Scunthorpe-Goole services. A commentor posted a rumour that EYMS had won the contract for the replacement service. EYMS have confirmed today on their twitter feed they will be operating between Goole and Scunthorpe from September.

EYMS already serve Scunthorpe with their share of the 350 Humber Fastcat service from Hull and National Express contracts. In Goole they operate the town service and services along the 'A63/M62' corridor to Hull. I would presume EYMS will use their Elloughton depot to operate their new Goole-Scunthorpe service; this is their nearest depot to Goole.

If anyone has any details, there are some questions I have:
  • Are Sweyne Coaches operating commercially or on a tendered basis at the moment?
  • Are EYMS going to be operating a commercial service or will it be a contracted route?
  • Does this affect the Stagecoach 357, the tendered Saturday service between Scunthorpe and Goole? (Sweyne do operate an Eastoft-Goole and Goole-Swinefleet journey on Saturdays as well)

EYMS have won the contract to run the service and this will include the previously separately contracted Saturday service currently run by Stagecoach. Yes, will be operated from Elloughton.

Not tied to this subject but thought it would interest you.
The Channel 5 programme filmed around the EYMS operation will be shown in July..I will try and find the exact date and post it asap.
