A decision notice reveals Hull City Council have awarded contracts for three tendered services from 1st September, on a "two year plus one" basis.
Service 58 - Hull City Centre to Broadway Drive awarded to EYMS at an estimated annual value of £67,081.70 (this is probably a replacement for the current EYMS operated service 50)
Service 1E - Sibelius Road to Mizzen Drive via Hull City Centre awarded to EYMS at an estimated annual value of £36,279.70 (this is probably a replacement for the current EYMS operated service 1C, though it seems the current Kingswood extension may not be included)
Service 46/46D Hull City Centre to Marfleet awarded to Stagecoach at an estimated annual value of £68,845 (Stagecoach currently hold this tender)
A contract for service K1 in the Bransholme area, currently operated by Stagecoach, has however not been awarded. This apparently produces an annual saving of £38,157.35. No indication was given about any possible replacement, which could leave some roads unserved, though close to roads served by other routes.
Tender decisions were made based upon PASS/FAIL quality threshold questions followed by a 100% price based decision.
Finally the decision notice mentions improved services 58 and 1E improving access for Hawthorn Avenue, North Road, Sibelius Road and Clough Road - The current 50/1C do not serve Hawthrorn Avenue, North Road or Clough Road.
