Hornsby Travel have won tendered services 16, 94 and 95

The Traveline East Midlands website confirms that Hornsby Travel will take over North Lincolnshire Council tendered services 16, 94 and 95 from 31st August, as had been expected. Current operator Stagecoach has also today cancelled their registrations for these services with VOSA.

While the Traveline East Midlands timetables aren't the most descriptive, it appears the 16 (a Scunthorpe Town Service) has a revised timetable and route, no longer operating as a circular and not serving Priory Lane or Glanville Avenue (areas also served by Hornsby service 22). Priory Lane and Glanville Avenue were introduced onto the route after being left unserved following RoadCar service changes a few years ago. Hornsby later added their own replacement service 22, a route Stagecoach also served for a time.

The 'new' 16 appears to operate from Parklands Caravan site via John Leggott and North Lindsey Colleges plus Brumby Wood Lane into Scunthorpe Town Centre, with departures from Parklands at 0940 and 1215, and from Scunthorpe Bus Station at 1200. The service continues to operate Tuesday and Thursday only.

The 94 has some minor changes. The Traveline East Midlands website shows that on weekdays some journeys will run slightly earlier or later, while the schools service will no longer serve Lime Sidings. Similar retimings will affect the 95 which will no longer serve Ashby High Street. There is also a new 1605 Redbourne-Brigg service on route 94 and a new 1805 Brigg-Lakeside service on route 95. However the school holidays 1521 Brigg-Lime Sidings service on route 94 appears withdrawn.

On Saturdays the route followed by service 95 will now match the weekday service, serving Scawby and Sturton but not Ashby High Street. As a result there are some slight timing changes to both services 94 and 95.
