Stagecoach takeover Hessle Town Service

Already briefly mentioned, but just to confirm, Stagecoach takeover the 183 Hessle Town Service from Monday, 6th November. The 183 had been operated by Bus King. Stagecoach haven't put a timetable on their website, but according to Yorkshire Travel will maintain Bus King's timetable, providing an approximately half hourly service during the morning and early afternoon Monday to Saturday.

The 183 is tendered by East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) and is due to end in April 2018 due to funding cuts. ERYC's Review of Bus Services documentation shows the 183 has an average five passenger per journey and a subsidy of £3.29 per passenger journey. In the balanced scorecard used by ERYC to propose cuts, the 183 was one 'place' away from being retained beyond April 2018.
