Stagecoach 13 Changes

On Easter Sunday (16th April), Stagecoach revised route 13 in Hull, linking Paragon Interchange and the City Centre with Holderness Road, Salthouse Road, Dunvegan Road, North Point Shopping Centre, Sutton Park and Orchard Park. The service remains half hourly daily daytimes between the Interchange and North Point, and throughout the full route to Orchard Park Monday to Friday.

The main change is to the route in Orchard Park; instead off most journeys operating a clockwise loop via Greenwood Avenue, Ellerburn Avenue, Hall Road and Beverley Road, journeys will run via Greenwood Avenue, Ellerburn Avenue, Orchard Park Road and Hall Road to Orchard Park Tesco and reverse. Stagecoach state this is to improve punctuality.

Peak time variation 13W, or rather college time variation that runs on all weekdays, 13W, is reduced in the evening from three journeys to one. The 13W operates as a circular around Hull, using the service 3 route between Hull and Orchard Park to complete it's loop of the city. While the 'anti-clockwise' 1554 from Hull Interchange remains, presumably for the benefit of Wiberforce College students, the 'anti-clockwise' 1640 and 1710 are now 'standard' 13's terminating at Orchard Park Tesco. Weekday evening peak service 13's from Orchard Park back to Hull Interchange change from 1555, 1625, 1655 and 1725 to 1608, 1638, 1738 and 1808.

The only significant change at weekends is an additional 1840 Hull Interchange to North Point on Saturdays, previous last journey at 1824.
