Note the service number now includes the 250. The 250 hasn't run for a few years, but was used for much of the 2000's and early 2010's for Barton to Grimsby services via Barrow, Thornton Curtis, Wootton, Ulceby and Immingham. Currently the 'corridor' is served by the subsidised 450 between Barton and Immingham. Last year North Lincolnshire Council wanted to divert the Humber Flyer to include Barrow, Thornton Curtis, Wootton and Ulceby. Then more recently North Lincolnshire Council have proposed cutting the service to Thornton Curtis, Wootton and Ulceby to two days a week.
Maybe I'm putting two and two together and getting five, but is there going to be some sort of integration between the Humber Flyer and the Barton to Ulceby 'corridor'? There doesn't seem to be a long term future for the 450 between Barton and Immingham at the moment, in it's current form at least.
