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.

Looking on the registration site there are mega changes coming up from May 21, it appears that all of the x55/6/7's are axed though I'm guessing they'll be replaced with something else. I did hear that the A63 won't feature as much.

Also changes to the 152/3 services.

For what it's worth, the 155 registrations also reference the X55, so maybe a chance that service continues
