Stagecoach Grimsby Area Changes April 2010

There are various entries on the VOSA website indicating changes in the Grimsby area from Stagecoach on April 5th. I have summarised these below, but I would advise caution until any officially announcement is made from Stagecoach about changes:

Services 25 (Grimsby-Ludford)/51 (Grimsby-Louth)/366 (Goxhill-Brigg/Scunthorpe) have been re-registered from the Lincolnshire RoadCar license to the Grimsby Cleethorpes license.

Changes will be made to Grimsby/Cleethorpes local services 7, 9, 13, 14 and 16.

An application has been made to cancel one license for service 45 between Grimsby and Barton, and the vary another between Grimsby and South Killingholme. This may link into unconfirmed reports from an anonymous commenter that Stagecoach will cease the 45B and 45H. If this happens, it would remove the link between Barton and Immingham, and the villages in between, and it would be highly likely North Lincolnshire Council would have to fund a replacement.

Talking of North Lincolnshire Council, in today's VOSA entries Stagecoach have cancelled tendered services 10, 327 and 450 as threatened to do so last month. The date for withdrawal has been moved from 29th March to 5th April if the VOSA entries are correct.

And a potentially concerning development with regards to the Humber Flyer; the section between Humberside Airport and Cleethorpes has been cancelled, but an application has been made to vary a service I didn't even know about, numbered service 1, between Grimsby and Keelby.

Finally not in the Grimsby area, but changes to the 909 between Brigg, Scunthorpe and Doncaster are also planned.
