Now a 'True' Circular

The 10 and it's predecessors have often been referred to as the Hull city circular service as it provides cross city links across Hull. However while it has been possible to travel cross-city via North Hull it never has been possible to travel across Hull City Centre on the same vehicle (at least not in recent times); a change has been required in the city centre. Therefore for journeys like Orchard Park to Wilberforce College the 10 has been very useful, but for journeys like Chanterlands Avenue to Holderness Road, the 10 didn't have much of an advantage over catching the 13 to Hull Interchange and changing onto say the 51.

Since Monday (1st September) however most journeys have become a 'true' circular, with passengers able to travel through Hull City Centre as well as North Hull without having to change vehicles. Through fares are available.

As part of this change the route between Hull Interchange and Spring Bank has been altered to operate via Park Street instead of Ferensway. While this misses out a set of stops on Spring Bank these have other services, the Park Street route is slightly quicker, and passengers from West Hull still have access to other city center stops after serving the Interchange.

The other major changes to the 10 see the service diverted via Spring Cottage instead off Sutton, replacing the 31, and gaining a hourly Sunday daytime service between Hull Interchange, Salthouse Road and Spring Cottage replacing service 53. The Monday to Saturday service remains half hourly daytimes with some minor timetable changes. The late Saturday night 2340 from Hull Interchange to North Point via Salthouse Road as been withdrawn.
