Stagecoach tender losses to Hornsby?

Hornsby Travel have today registered with VOSA services 16 and 94/95 from 31st August, both North Lincolnshire Council tendered services currently operated by Stagecoach. Stagecoach have not yet cancelled their registrations.

Service 16 operates Tuesday and Thursdays only to provide a link from the Parklands Caravan Site and Woodlands Crematorium to Scunthorpe Bus Station. Services 94 and 95 link Gainsthorpe (Mon-Fri) and Glentham (Saturday) to Brigg and Scunthorpe. They were extensively revised last Autumn as outlined here and if they have been lost by Stagecoach would mean a reduction in one of Scunthorpe depot's peak vehicle requirement. The Saturday service also receives some financial support from Lincolnshire County Council.

Hornsby have also registered to amend services 9 (Scunthorpe Hospital Shuttle) and 25 (Scunthorpe-Keadby-Amcotts) from 31st August
