28A becomes 29

Since Monday 1st September, Stagecoach service 28A in Hull has been renumbered service 29; it continues to link Hull City Centre, Beverley Road, Sutton Park, North Point and Kingswood, operating via Bodmin Road between North Point and Kingswood instead off Kingsbury Way as the 28 does. Combined the routes provide a service every 15 minute minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes and half hourly Sunday daytimes, alternating between the 28 and 29. Monday to Saturday evenings receive a half hourly service and Sunday evenings an hourly service.

To quote Stagecoach, the timetable for the 28/29 has also been "simplified" which translates as some minor retimings, removing the Monday to Saturday peaktine Kingswood Leisure Park extensions (partially replaced by changes to the 31) and altering the Monday to Saturday evening service from half hourly 28/28A combined to half hourly service 29 and the Sunday evening service from hourly 28 to hourly 29, therefore removing evening services from Kingsbury Way; I believe this is because Hull City Council subsidy has been withdrawn.

As part of Stagecoach's changes to routes in Hull City Centre, all inbound services will use the city centre to loop until 1400 daily, then operate inbound using the more direct route via Spencer Street and Brook Street. Previously this direct route was only used between 1500 and 1800 Monday to Saturday. As part of the Workers+ initative, the weekday early morning services that start at North Point will extend beyond Carr Lane on the city centre loop to Hull Royal Infirmary, Rawling Way and English Street for Smith and Nephew before operating to the Interchange via Ferensway.
