New EYMS 66B

From Sunday 8th March, EYMS are amending their service 66 between Hull City Centre, the Boothferry Estate and Hessle. The main change sees two weekday morning services from Hull Interchange at 0725 and 0805 extended from Hessle Square to the new Bridgehead Business Park, near the Humber Bridge roundabout, operating as service 66B. In the evening peak, two return service 66B's operate at 1715 and 1745 from the Bridgehead Business Park to Hull Interchange directly via Darleys Roundabout, omitting Hessle and the Boothferry Estate. Cross-river services Humber Fastcat (350) and Humber Flyer also run close to the business park.

Additionally times on service 66 are revised slightly to improve punctuality. The weekday morning 'contra-peak' service from Hull Interchange to Hessle is reduced from every 15 to every 20 minutes, though the first departure is now 10 minutes earlier at 0625.

The reduction in the morning 'contra-peak' frequency is from every 15 to every 20 minutes - so not quite as bad as you suggest. With the earlier first journey, this results in there being 5 departures from the interchange before 0805, rather than 6 as previously.

That's a typo on my part. Thanks for pointing it out. I've corrected the original post
