Scunthorpe Hospital Service Changes February 2014

Hornsby Travel are revising services 9 and 90 in February; service 90 is operated under contract to North Lincolnshire Council. The below is taken from Traveline East Midlands.

Serrvice 9 currently provides a 20 minute frequency Monday to Saturday daytime between Scunthorpe Bus Station and Scunthorpe Hospital, operating on an anti-clockwise loop serving Cliff Gardens outbound from Scunthorpe Bus Station and Church Lane inbound. While primarily a hospital shuttle service, it does serve some residential areas. From Saturday 1st February however the Saturday service is severely cutback. Instead of a 20 minute frequency, services will now only operate from Scunthorpe Bus Station at 0845, 1045, 1145, 1345 and 1445, serving the Scunthorpe Hospital Main Entrance at 0855, 1055, 1155, 1355 and 1455.

Additionally a limited number of extra journeys will be provided by revised service 90 between Scunthorpe, Crowle and Luddington. All Saturday journeys will now operate via the hospital grounds, as opposed to stops outside the hospital on Cliff Gardens. These depart Scunthorpe Bus Station at 0720, 0915, 1215, 1515 and 1725, and have slightly revised times towards Crowle/Luddington as a result. In the return direction journeys from Luddington/Crowle have revised times of up to 10 minutes later than at present, and serve Scunthorpe Hospital Main Entrance at 0825, 1020, 1320, 1646 and 1830.

As a result new departure times from Scunthorpe Bus Station for the combined 9/90 will be 0720, 0845, 0915, 1045, 1145, 1215, 1345, 1445, 1515 and 1725. From the main entrance of Scunthorpe Hospital departures will be at 0825, 0855, 1020, 1055, 1155, 1320, 1355, 1455, 1646 and 1830. It should also be noted that there are other services available from between Scunthorpe Bus Station and Cliff Gardens to supplement the 9/90 that operate via the hospital grounds.

Weekday services on route 90 are unchanged, while weekday service 9 has a new 1845 departure between Scunthorpe Bus Station and the outpatients department on Cliff Gardens only.
