From Sunday 13th May, Stagecoach made some changes to local services around Grimsby and Cleethorpes. The main change saw the interworked 3 and 4 services between Cleethorpes, Grimsby and Laceby Road Morrisons reduced on weekday daytimes from an every 10 minute frequency to an every 12 minute frequency. Not a huge change, but not good news either.
Evenings see a variety of changes on services 3 and 4. Starting with service 3, the weekday 1755 Cleethorpes to Morrisons terminates at Grimsby Riverhead Exchange, but there is a new weekday 1830 Cleethorpes to Grimsby 'short', filling a gap between 'full route' departures at 1815 and 1845. The Monday to Saturday 2045 Cleethorpes to Morrisons also terminates at Riverhead Exchange, but the Monday to Saturday 2145 departure from Cleethorpes is replaced by 2115 and 2215 departures. On Sundays the 1845 from Cleethorpes to Morrisons terminates at Grimsby Riverhead Exchange, with the 1945/2045/2145/2245 operating half an hour earlier. Daily there is also a new 2315 Cleethorpes to Grimsby short; the previous last service had been at 2245 (the 2245 remains Monday to Saturday).
In the opposite direction, on Saturdays the 1755 from Morrisons terminates at Grimsby Riverhead Exchange rather than running through to Cleethorpes. Monday to Saturday the 2035 Morrisons to Cleethorpes terminates at Grimsby Riverhead Exchange, but the 2135 and 2235 departures are replaced by 2105, 2205 and 2255 departures. On Sundays the 1804 Morrisons to Grimsby Riverhead Exchange is now a 1805 Morrisons to Cleethorpes, the 1834 Morrisons to Cleethorpes is withdrawn and the 1934/2034/2134/2234 Morrisons to Cleethorpes services now operate at 1905/2005/2105/2205 along with a new 2255 Morrisons to Cleethorpes.
On service 4 the Monday to Saturday 2115 and 2215 departures from Cleethorpes move to 2145 and 2245, with the 2315 Cleethorpes to Grimsby short withdrawn. On Sundays the 1815 from Cleethorpes to Morrisons terminates at Grimsby Riverhead Exchange, there is a new 1845 Cleethorpes to Morrisons, with the 1915/2015/2115/2215 retimed to 1945/2045/2145/2245 and the 2315 Cleethorpes to Grimsby short withdrawn.
From Morrisons on service 4, the Monday to Saturday 2055 to Cleethorpes terminates at Grimsby Riverhead Exchange, with the 2155 and 2255 to Cleethorpes retimed earlier to 2125 and 2225 and a new 2325 Morrisons to Grimsby Riverhead Exchange added. The last service from Riverhead Exchange to Cleethorpes is now at 2245 rather than 2315. On Sundays the 1827 Morrisons to Grimsby Riverhead Exchange becomes a 1825 Morrisons to Cleethorpes, the 1855/1955/2055/2155/2255 become 1925/2025/2125/2225 departures along with a 2325 Morrisons to Grimsby Riverhead Exchange short.
There were also minor retimings to some journeys on routes 1/2/20 between Cleethorpes, Grimsby, Europarc and Wybers Wood.
