Stagecoach Evening and Sunday improvements in Grimsby and Cleethorpes

From Monday 28th October, Stagecoach are improving evening and Sunday services in the Grimsby and Cleethorpes area.

Service 8 between Grimsby Town Centre, Scartho, New Waltham and North Sea Lane gains a half hourly daytime service on Sunday and Bank Holidays and an hourly service on Sunday and Bank Holiday evenings - matching the Monday to Saturday frequencies and replacing the Sunday only extensions of the 9A from North Sea Lane to New Waltham. Sunday service 8 will interwork with the 9A at North Sea Lane for through links to Cleethorpes, as it does Monday to Saturdays.

The hourly Monday to Saturday evening service on the 9 between Waltham and Grimsby becomes a service 9A, extended through to Cleethorpes and North Sea Lane, in line with daily daytimes and Sunday evenings. As a result the Monday to Saturday evening service on route 46 between Immingham, Grimsby and Cleethorpes will terminate at Cleethorpes Pier and no longer extend down to North Sea Lane, matching the route of service 46 on Sundays.

Finally the last departure on Monday to Saturday evenings on service 8 from Grimsby moves later from 2245 to 2315, but from North Sea Lane moves earlier from 2315 to 2245.

Overall these changes bring the evening and Sunday network 'into line' with the Monday to Saturday dayime network. Hopefully the more simple, enhanced services will be well used.

Townhall St in Grimsby opened today for buses heading westward though the town centre as part of the bus station closure. This means the bus station was replaced by only 9 stands on 3 different streets. Also the road is now a "shared space" where people walk in front of buses!
