EYMS 88 reductions

From Monday 21st May, EYMS are reducing service 88 between Goole and Thorne. The service was introduced in September 2015 to replace First's long standing Goole-Thorne-Doncaster service. Until March East Riding of Yorkshire Council provided financial support that amounted to 7p per passenger journey, but this subsidy was a victim of cuts to the council's financial support for bus services.

Due to low use, the first and last weekday journeys in each direction will be withdrawn - 0725 and 1740 from Goole, and 0806 and 1820 from Thorne; first journeys will now be at 0850 from Goole and 0930 from Thorne, and last journeys at 1620 from Goole and 1700 from Thorne. Other journeys are unaffected; 6 journeys each way will now be provided on weekdays as well as on Saturdays, but with the differing 90 minute weekday and 80 minute with a lunch break Saturday frequencies remaining.
