Hull-Hedon-Withernsea Changes.

Sunday 2nd April sees EYMS introduce some major changes to services between Hull, Hedon and Withernsea.

Currently EYMS operate a half hourly Monday to Saturday daytime service between Hull, Hedon and Withernsea, routes 76/77, supplemented by an extra service every 1-2 hours between Hull and Hedon via Victoria Dock and Paull, also serving the Inmans Estate in Hedon, route 78, and a service every 2 hours between Hull and Hedon via Bilton, Sproatley and Preston, route 277. From April the network is being revised to, amongst other things, provide an even interval service between Hull and Hedon every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes across routes 76, 77, 78 and 79.

Focusing on the Withernsea services first, the impact of optimising the Hull to Hedon service is that the nice half hourly Monday to Saturday daytime frequency becomes 2 buses per hour, departing Waxholme Road in Withernsea at 2 minutes and 26 minutes past the hour, and Hull at 10 minutes and 30 minutes past the hour. Otherwise there does not seem to be much change to the structure of the timetable, the main daytime service still alternates between routes 76 and 77, each operating every hour, with service 75 operating some peak time services, in the evenings and on Sundays. The Saturday afternoon Hull to Keyingham 'short' now runs through to Withernsea, ending a one hour gap in the timetable for passengers beyond Keyingham, but with the return Keyingham to Hull short withdrawn.

On Sundays between Hull and Withernsea, all journeys continue to serve Burstwick despite East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) removing subsidy for two daytime journeys each way to run via the village. The 75 operates hourly to a standard interval 'pattern' on Sunday daytimes so quite why ERYC were spending £2.34 per passenger journey, average one passenger per journey to get on or off in Burstwick, in the first place is an interesting question.

Service 78 currently operates every 1-2 hours between Hull and Hedon serving Hull Marina, The Deep, Victoria Dock and Paull, as well as the Inmans Estate in Hedon. Many journeys start as/continue as service 277. The journey time between Hull Interchange and Thorn Road Corner in Hedon is 45 minutes, compared to 26 minutes on service 77 and 31 minutes on service 76. Supplementing the 78 are occasional service 79's omitting Hull Marina, The Deep and Paull, and occasional weekday morning service 80 between Hull and Hedon via Victoria Dock, Paull on some journeys, and the Westlands Estate in Hedon.

The service changes do simplify the 78/79/80, with an increased hourly service being provided Monday to Saturday daytimes across routes 78 and 79 combined; to quicken the routes service 78 will no longer serve Paull, routing Hull-Hull Marina-The Deep-Victoria Dock-Hedon-Inmans Estate, while the 79 will start serving Paull, routing Hull-Victoria Dock-Paull-Hedon-Inmans Estate. Most journeys will operate as route 78. Journey time from Hull Interchange to Thorn Road Corner is 35 minutes on service 78 and 33 minutes on service 79. For Hull to Hedon travellers the changes are positive, with three fairly similar length journeys per hour on an even 20 minute frequency, while Victoria Dock now gets an EYMS service every hour (not quite even interval hourly).

The 0725 service 79 from Hedon to Hull on Saturday mornings, due to have it's ERYC subsidy removed, is retained, operating at 0740 instead - together with an associated service 277 journey that is being withdrawn it has been attracting an average 8 passengers at a subsidy of £6.01 per passenger journey.

It's not all good though. Service 80 via the Westlands Estate goes entirely. The June 2016 ERYC 'Review of Bus Services' documents quotes an average 19 passengers per journey and a subsidy of 68p per passenger. I'm not sure if the local CB3 operated by HART Community Transport could be revised to provide an alternative link from the Westlands Estate into Hedon Town Centre? I can't see how the Westlands Estate could easily be included in EYMS's revised service pattern, although the Saturday 173 could maybe be diverted to provide a basic shopping link into Hull?

The village of Paull is left with a substantially worse service - it goes from a service every one to two hours, to having a less frequent service that is optimised only for travel into Hull and is very poor for access into Hedon. Currently it enjoys journeys into Hedon at 0727 (weekday only), 0857, 1057, 1127 (weekday only), 1257, 1457, 1627 (weekday only) and 1737, plus later Stagecoach operated journeys, with returns at 0835 (weekday only) 0845 (Sat), 0915 (Sat), 0932 (weekday only), 1010, 1110, 1310, 1510 and 1725, plus later Stagecoach operated journeys. From next week journeys from Paull into Hedon leave at 0725, 0840, 1015, 1315, 1625 and 1835, returning at 0748, 0934, 1334 and 1802.

Services via Paull have been a mixture of commercially operated, and ERYC subsidised, and ERYC are withdrawing subsidies for most Paull diversions, which is no doubt part of the reason for reducing services to the village. However by moving about which journeys run as 78's and which run as 79's, improvements could be made for Paull to Hedon customers, although the impact on users to Hull Marina and The Deep would need to considered, as would the requirements that come with the Hull City Council subsidy to serve these areas. Diversions via Paull in the 1010 and 1310 from Hedon attract an average 1 passenger per journey at a subsidy of £12.81 per passenger journey. Diversions via Paull in the 0835 and 1510 attract an average 1 passenger per journey at a subsidy of £5.22 per passenger journey.

Paull is also impacted by the withdrawal entirely of service 78 on Sundays, when three EYMS daytime journeys operated each way between Hull and Hedon, and of most service 78 Monday to Saturday evening journeys, currently operated by Stagecoach; the 1810 from Hull has been retained however and passes to EYMS as service 79. Again these cuts are due to ERYC subsidy reductions; together with associated service 277 journeys, Sunday services attracted an average 19 passengers per journey at a subsidy of £1.56 per passenger journey, while evening services, including the retained journey, attracted an average 10 passengers per journey at a subsidy of £2.30 per passenger journey. In ERYC's scorecard, the evening service was one 'point' away from having survived being cut for another year. As well as Paull being cut off from the bus network evenings and Sundays, the Victoria Dock estate in Hull and Hedon's Inmans Estate are also impacted.

Service 277 sees substantial change as well; the through journeys with service 78/79 are largely withdrawn, and it will also serve Thorngumbald and Burstwick with a new route that provides new regular bus services to parts of Burstwick and Preston. Most journeys will operate an anti-clockwise loop; after routing from Hull Interchange via Holderness Road, Bilton and Sproately to Preston they will then route via Hedon, Thorngumbald and Burstwick back to Preston and into Hull again. This does increase journey times for return journeys from Hedon to Sproately and Bilton.

The timetable is also reduced. Weekday services currently depart Hull Interchange at 0620, 0735, 0915, 1015 , 1215, 1415 and 1630, plus later Stagecoach journeys and on Saturdays at 0640, 0750, 0915, 1015, 1215, 1415 and 1630 plus later Stagecoach services, but this reduces to 0735, 0920, 1020. 1220, 1420 (via Burstwick and Thorngumbald) and 1735 on weekdays, and 0920, 1020, 1220, 1520 (via Burstwick and Thorngumbald) and 1735 on Saturdays. Note the new evening peak journey though at 1735, which terminates in Burstwick and does not serve Hedon.

In the return direction services currently leave Hedon at 0706, 0916, 1116, 1316, 1516, 1646 and 1756 on weekdays, with all journeys except the 1646 also running on Saturdays. This changes on weekdays to 0705 from Burstwick (not serving Hedon), 0819, 1004, 1104 and 1304 from Hedon via Burstwick, 1517 from Hedon serving Burstwick on the inbound journey and 1642 and 1852 from Hedon as a through journey from service 79. On Saturdays there will be an 0835 from Burstwick followed by 1004, 1104 and 1304 from Hedon via Burstwick, 1642 from Hedon serving Burstwick on the inbound journey and 1852 from Hedon as a through journey from service 79.

The 277 will also see it's EYMS operated Sunday service of three journeys each way and most Stagecoach operated Monday to Saturday evening services withdrawn, with only the 1850 from Hedon surviving, passing to EYMS as the 1852 service.

Some positives for sure in these changes, such as for Hull to Hedon travellers, and things could have turned out slightly worse with the ERYC bus subsidy cuts, but definitely not all good news.

Pocklington Town Service to end

After operating one final time on Tuesday 28th March, EYMS's Pocklington Town Service 198 will be withdrawn. It provides two Tuesday circular journeys around the town, effectively one journey into the town centre, and one journey back.

The 198 was never referred to in East Riding of Yorkshire Council consultation documents referring to their upcoming cuts to bus subsidies, so I wonder if this was commercially operated but reliant on being interworked with contracted services? Revised Tuesday services 195 and 199 into Pocklington remain however, and it would appear that a vehicle at least would be available to continue the Pocklington Town Service; the 195 arrives into Pocklington at 1040 and departs at 1235, while the 199 arrives at 0950 and departs at 1125. So is the withdrawal down to driver availability, passenger numbers, loss of funding from elsewhere, concessionary fare repayments, something else?

Airmyn-Hook-Goole changes

Going by Traveline Yorkshire, the 355 service from Airmyn to Goole will end at the end of March. The service, operated 'directly' by East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) provides a weekday 'shopper' service from Airmyn, routing via Hook on Wednesday and Friday only. The service attracts an average 8 passengers per journey at a subsidy of £2.69 per journey, and the subsidy was proposed for withdrawal as part of ERYC's wider cuts to bus subsidies. Would a reduction in operating days have helped boost average passengers per journey and reduce subsidy?

That might be a moot point, as the traffic commissioners Notices and Proceedings from 10/03/17 included the following, on which I can't find out any more information about but would appear to be at least a partial replacement for the 355:

Goole and District Community Transport Group
Goole Go Far
West Dock
Lower Bridge Street
DN14 5SS
Permit number CB000479B1190
Route Airmyn –Hook-Goole Shopper
From High Street, Airmyn, Goole and From High Street, Airmyn, Goole
Application to register received 27/2/2017
Effective date 7/4/2017

The 355 is Hook's only bus service, but Airmyn is also served by Arriva's 400 between Goole and Selby. The 400 only operates at 'peak' times, with weekday departures from Airmyn for Goole at 0755, 0908, 1717 and 1800. From Goole weekday services operate at 0815, 1500 and 1820. On Saturday's Airmyn's only bus to Goole is at 1755, returning at 1815 - not quite sure of the point of that. All services start at/continue to Selby.

EYMS operated Sunday service 400 operates for the final time tomorrow, also a victim of the ERYC bus subsidy cuts. This gave Airmyn a two hourly service, far better than on Saturdays! (At one point, probably around 15 years ago, Hook enjoyed a Sunday service, but no Saturday service)

There is a hourly service between Goole and Selby Monday to Saturday daytimes, but most operate as service 401 omitting Airmyn; the Airmyn diversion seems to incur a 6 minute 'time penalty' each way, but also serves Goole Hospital. I am not sure of what if any interworking with other services occurs at Selby, but I guess in off peak hours with a standard pattern timetable, to serve Airmyn would require an extra vehicle? Otherwise why not serve Airmyn and Goole Hospital for the sake of 6 minutes each way? Or operate into Goole via Airmyn and Goole Hospital and return direct one hour, then vice versa the next hour - giving Airmyn a two hourly service?

Another option for Airmyn and Hook could be to route the Wednesday only 488 from Selby and Hensall via these villages en-route between Rawcliffe and Goole, which could also boost the usage of this council subsidised service.

Friday 24 March 2017

Service 199 to continue

Service 199 from Huggate to Pocklington is set to continue operating from April onwards, despite East Riding of Yorkshire Council having proposed to withdraw subsidy for it. The service, which is operated by EYMS, provides a Tuesday only link to Pocklington from Huggate, Warter, Nunburnholme, Burnby and Hayton. It is the only bus service to serve Huggate, and after the withdrawal of service S1 next week, will be the only bus to serve Nunburnholme and Burnby. The 199 has been averaging 3 passengers per journey, at a subsidy of £7.00 per journey.

Whilst the service will continue, the 1157 from Huggate is withdrawn, leaving the 0920 from Huggate and 1125 return from Pocklington.

Service 180 Morning Peak Journey Withdrawn

After operating on Friday 31st March, EYMS's 0719 Monday to Saturday service 180 Cottingham to Beverley journey, will be withdrawn, with the first journey at 0819 instead. Service X80 has an earlier weekday departure from Cottingham at 0759, but not serving Skidby, Little Weighton and Walkington as the 180 does. This is as part of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council cuts to bus subsidies, as the journey was subsidised between Walkington and Beverley; it had an average 3 passengers per journey at a subsidy of £5.77 per passenger journey.

Service 180 will also be having it's Sunday service withdrawn from April.

Sunday 19 March 2017

EYMS 195/196/X36

From April 1st, EYMS operated service 195 in the Pocklington area will be reduced following cuts to bus subsidies by East Riding of Yorkshire Council; the service was due to have it's subsidy dropped entirely so it is good that some service has been retained.

Currently the 195 provides a Wednesday and Saturday shopper bus from Pocklington to York via various villages to the south of Pocklington, and a Tuesday and Thursday shopper bus from Newton upon Derwent via the same villages into Pocklington, with the afternoon return extending into York. There is also a commercial Tuesday lunchtime Newton upon Derwent to York service.

From April the 195 will only offer a Tuesday and Thursday service to Pocklington. The service will start in Allerthorpe, serve multiple villages to Newton upon Derwent and then run direct to Pocklington. The logic behind this seems to be offer connections to York; on Thursday's the timetable connects with service 196 in Hagg Bridge, Sutton upon Derwent and Newton upon Derwent, and on Tuesday's the morning service connects with York Pullman's 36 in Sutton upon Derwent. This means that despite the through services to York being withdrawn, this shopping link is retained with a connection, and hopefully service 196 boosted with the connecting passengers from the 195.

However the flip side is that Allerthorpe to Pocklington will take 70 minutes instead off the current 9 minutes - should the Tuesday 195 be operating Newton upon Derwent-Allerthorpe-Pocklington instead? Thornton, Bielby, Everingham and Seaton Ross also see increased journey times into Pocklington.

The Saturday X36 serving most of the same villages as the 195 is also being withdrawn at the same time; this provides a peak service to/from York. This seems like a good time to note as well that York Pullman operated services 36/X36 have "minor timetable changes" according to iTravel York from 3rd April. York Pullman's X36 provides the weekday equivalent of the to-be-withdrawn Saturday X36, and the 36/X36 combined provide a Monday to Saturday daytime link from Sutton upon Derwent and Elvington into York.

From the June 2016 consultation document it seems the 195 and Saturday X36 were in one contract, with an average 5 passengers per journey at a subsidy of £15.16 per passenger journey.

Those familiar with the 196 will note it currently runs on Tuesdays, but moves to Thursdays from next month with the afternoon journey from York operating at 1320 rather than 1337.

Improved service 120

Moving away from cuts briefly, to an enhancement. On 4th March Scarborough and District (the brand for EYMS's Scarborough operations) reintroduced regular seasonal service 120 between Scarborough and Bridlington, via Filey and various holiday camps. The service operates hourly, on a daily daytime basis from early March to early November (ending on the 5th this year). From Sunday 9th April the 0805 from Scarborough to Bridlington shall operate 15 minutes earlier, the 1905 from Scarborough to Reighton Sands Holiday Village shall extend to Bridlington and there shall be a new 2040 from Bridlington to Scarborough.

Currently the last 120 from Scarborough to Bridlington is at 1705, and from Bridlington at 1840. EYMS service 121 which doesn't serve all the holiday camps has later last departures from Scarborough at 1820 from Scarborough and 1920 (1915 weekends) from Bridlington. As a result of the improved evening service on route 120, Bridlington residents and visitors can spend an extra 45 minutes in Scarborough (slightly longer in Filey), whilst Scarborough and Filey residents and visitors can spend an extra 80/85 minutes in Bridlington; holiday camp visitors served only by service 120 gain an extra 2 hours in East Yorkshire.

EYMS Sunday 153 to operate commercially

Sunday journeys on service 153 between Anlaby, Swanland, North Ferriby and Welton will no longer be funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) from April, due to ERYC cuts to bus subsidies. The good news however is that EYMS will be continuing to operate these services with no changes to the timetable, on a commercial basis.

The Sunday 153 is already operated commercially by EYMS between Hull and Anlaby. The main section of the service between Hull, Anlaby and North Ferriby operates hourly Sunday daytimes, with journeys then alternating between serving residential areas of North Ferriby (Nunburnholme Avenue), or the villages off Melton and Welton. The Anlaby to North Ferriby/Welton section of route has been attracting an average 4 passengers per journey with a subsidy of £2.62 per journey.

Wednesday 15 March 2017

Evening Peak 517 Journey Withdrawn

Due to the withdrawal of funding by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, EYMS will be ending the 1750 Monday to Saturday departure from Bridlington Bus Station on Town Circular service 517 from Saturday 1st April. This journey had an average 6 customers per journey at a subsidy of £3.42 per passenger.

As a result the last departure from the Bus Station will be at 1650, though most of the route is covered by service 507 which has a 1720 departure from the Bus Station. Parts of the route are also covered by services 120 (March to November) and 121.

Monday 13 March 2017

S1, S2, S3 to end ... but there is a replacement

After operation on 31st March, the Market Weighton 'shopper' buses S1, S2 and S3 will no longer operate. These services are operated by EYMS under contract to East Riding of Yorkshire Council. The S1 provides a Tuesday link into Pocklington from Londesborough and Burnby (with the journey to Pocklington starting in Market Weighton) and a Friday link from Burnby and Londesborough to Market Weighton. The S2 provides a Tuesday and Friday Market Weighton-North Cliffe-South Cliffe-Hotham-South Newbald-North Newbald-Sancton-Market Weighton circular whilst the S3 provides a Friday Goodmanham to Market Weighton service .

The S1, S2 and S3 are being withdrawn as part of cuts to bus subsidies by East Riding of Yorkshire Council. They carry an average of one passenger per journey at a cost of £10.29 per journey, with annual passengers numbering just 738, according to the June 2016 'Review of Bus Services in the East Riding' document. A demand responsive replacement was proposed in both the June and revised December document.

However there is to be a 'traditional' replacement service for the S3 and Friday elements of the S1 and S2. New service 198, operated by EYMS, will run on Friday mornings from North Cliffe, South Cliffe, Hotham, South Newbald, North Newbald and Sancton into Market Weighton, before operating a circular trip via Londesborough and Goodmanham back to Market Weighton. There will then be a lunchtime return. This ensures that North Cliffe, South Cliffe, Londesborough and Goodmanham retain a bus service, albeit for the first three villages no longer on a Tuesday - but something is better than nothing. Burnby is not included on the 198 but will retain a Tuesday bus service on route 199 (which was to have it's funding withdrawn as well, but will continue operating).

It is worth noting that South Newbald, North Newbald and Sanction are also served by service X4 between Hull, South Cave, Market Weighton and York, providing 4 to 5 journeys per day. Hotham, North Newbald and South Newbald are also on the service 143 route, providing one Monday and two Wednesday and Saturday journeys to Beverley. The existence of alternatives for four of the six villages served by the S2 cannot have helped that service's viability, and consequently can't have helped the viability of the associated S1 and S3 services. Still I wouldn't begrudge the 143 and X4 considering the greater number of communities they serve and how the X4 in particular has given South Newbald, North Newbald and Sancton a 6 day a week bus service.

Sunday 12 March 2017

Goodbye service 160

After operation on Wednesday 29th March EYMS service 160 from Staddlethorpe to Goole via Howden will be withdrawn, following the withdrawal of subsidy by East Riding of Yorkshire Council. The route operates on Wednesday and Saturday, with a 1000 departure from Staddlethorpe arriving in Goole at 1046, and a 1330 return service from Goole.

As a result the following villages will be left without a bus service (except schools):
Barmby on the Marsh

Laxton is served by Saltmarshe railway station, and Staddlethorpe by Gilberdyke station.

The 160 carried an average 9 passengers per journey, at a cost of £5.70 per passenger journey. I wonder if a reduction to one day a week could have 'saved' the service? Maybe this is too simplistic, but if some of the passengers from the 'dropped' day travelled on the one remaining day the service operated the average loading per journey may have increased and the subsidy per passenger reduced?

As an aside, the 160 managed 15 years without a timetable change, from 1999 to 2014 when the current timetable was introduced.

Service 121 Early Morning Changes

Largely as a result of the cuts to bus subsidies by East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) there will be early morning reductions to parts of EYMS service 121 between Hull and Scarborough from April 1st.

The 0628 Monday to Saturday Nafferton to Hull service will now start in Beverley, with the first service from Nafferton southwards at 0656 instead. ERYC were only funding this journey between Nafferton and Leconfield, so the Leconfield to Beverley section would appear to be a commercial withdrawal by EYMS. The Nafferton to Leconfield section had an average 2 passengers per journey, subsidised at £11.50 per journey. A pre 0800 arrival into Hull is still possible from Nafferton, Driffield and Hutton Cranswick by rail.

The 0653 Monday to Saturday Driffield to Scarborough service will now start in Bridlington; the first bus from Driffield to Nafferton will now be at 0721 and from Driffield to Bridlington and Scarborough at 0738. A pre 0800 arrival into Bridlington from Driffield and Nafferton is still possible by rail, which also offers a pre 0900 arrival into Scarborough - not much use for other villages between Nafferton and Bridlington however.

The 0704 Sunday Leconfield to Hull service will now start in Beverley; the first service from Leconfield southwards will now be at 0824. This part journey was not listed in the ERYC consultation documents so I assume is a commercial withdrawal.

The School Holiday Weekday and Saturday journey at 0815 from Bridlington to Driffield will no longer operate, leaving a 170 minute gap in service 121 departures southwards from Bridlington between 0635 and 0925. This is slightly reduced when making allowance for the 0650 service 45 from Bridlington to York via Driffield. Rail again offers an alternative for travel between Bridlington, Nafferton and Driffield with departures from Bridlington in this time period at 0644, 0712, 0730, 0808 and 0905.

No other journeys on service 121 are altered. The 0635 Monday to Saturday Hull to Scarborough between Driffield and Bridlington and 2135 Hull to Nafferton between Driffield and Nafferton should also have had their council funding withdrawn, but it seems EYMS will continue these part journeys commercially.

Wednesday 8 March 2017

Service 241 to be withdrawn

After operation on Wednesday 29th March, service 241 from Aldbrough to Beverley will be withdrawn due to East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) cuts to tendered bus services. The route has been operated by EYMS on Mondays and Wednesdays, with a 0930 departure from Aldbrough Cliffs arriving in Beverley at 1020 and a return service from Beverley at 1256.

The villages of Skirlaugh and Long Riston will retain a 'shopping' link into Beverley via Stagecoach operated Monday to Saturday service 242, whilst Skirlaugh is also linked to Beverley by ERYC directly operated service 243 on weekdays. Routh and Tickton have an hourly Beverley service on EYMS route 246 Monday to Saturday daytimes, plus limited evening and Sunday journeys, in addition to service 242, and in the case of Routh the 243 as well. These more frequent services duplicating the 241 will not have helped the case for retaining service 241.

From Aldbrough passengers for Beverley can use service 129 to Hornsea to connect onto service 246. It is only the villages off Withernwick, Hatfield and Rise that are left without an option for travel to Beverley; these villages are also left without a Monday or Wednesday bus service as the 230 that provides a connection/through service to Hull from Withernwick, Hatfield and Rise only runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (through service on Saturday, connection Tue/Thu).

Service 241 carries an average of 8 passengers per journey at a subsidy of £5.95 per journey.

EYMS Sunday Services Axed

Due to the withdrawal of East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) subsidies, EYMS are axing the following Sunday services entirely from the start off April.
  • 142: Beverley-Middleton - two return journeys, but one journey each way is effectively a positioning journey (which can't help the economics of the service). EYMS Saturday and schoolday journeys are unchanged, but no alternative Sunday provision is available.
  • 155: Goole-Gilberdyke-South Cave - five return journeys between Goole and Gilberdyke, with the first service from Gilberdyke starting at South Cave and the last one extending to South Cave. Service X57 runs on a Sunday between Gilberdyke and South Cave but the main Gilberdyke to Goole section, including Howden, has no alternative, apart from the train between Gilberdyke and Goole. Monday to Saturday services, including those subsidised by ERYC, are unchanged.
  • 180: Beverley-Cottingham - three return journeys. Service X47 continues to provide a Sunday link between Beverley and Cottingham but does not serve Walkington, Little Weighton, Skidby or Castle Hill Hospital; Beverley to Castle Hill Hospital passengers can connect from the X47 to the 64 or 115 in Cottingham.
  • 361: Goole-Swinefleet - four return journeys. Monday to Saturday services 360/361 are unaffected, but no Sunday alternative is available.
  • 400/401: Goole-Selby - 2 hourly Sunday daytime service via the town of Snaith, a number of villages and Goole Hospital. No alternatives exist on a Sunday for anywhere on the route.
  • 506: Bridlington Town Service - 6 circular journeys; part of the route is covered by service 121 but the West Hill estate will be left without a Sunday service. Monday to Saturday services continue unchanged.
  • 508: Bridlington Town Service - 7 circular journeys. This service only operates on Sundays, so is being withdrawn entirely. Service 121 again provides an alternative service for parts of the route, but for other areas, such as New Pasture Lane, there is no Sunday alternative.
  • 520: Beverley Town Service - 2 circular journeys; service 121 serves Swinemoor Lane which is within walking distance for part of the route, but otherwise no Sunday alternative. Monday to Saturday journeys are unchanged.
  • 522: Beverley Town Service - 2 circular journeys; services X46/X47 cover part of the route, and are within walking distance of some other parts, but otherwise no Sunday alternative.
  • 523: Beverley Town Service - 2 circular journeys with no Sunday alternative apart from a walk to catch service 121. This service only operates a Sunday, being covered by the 122 Monday to Saturday, and is therefore being withdrawn entirely.
Some of these services, such as the 142 and 361, are rather unusual on Sundays by national standards sadly, linking villages to their nearest town; in parts of the country such links aren't even available on weekdays. EYRC deserve credit for keeping such a good Sunday network going for so long, no doubt helped by EYMS running a core Sunday network commercially. However this will not be much comfort to those that use these Sunday services at present. In addition whilst some of these routes are rural village services, others are more significant losses such as the 400/401 between Goole and Selby. Indeed aside from the Stagecoach X62, Goole will have no Sunday bus services after these withdrawals.
