Stagecoach 51 Cutbacks

Stagecoach have cancelled the vast majority of their planned April changes in North East Lincolnshire, with one exception, changes to service 51 between Grimsby and Louth. Their announcement covers the withdrawal of the college day only 51C journeys serving Franklin College at 0730 from Louth and 1620 from Grimsby; alternative journeys remain from Louth at 0725 and Grimsby Riverhead Exchange at 1615, serving Grimsby Institute within walking distance of Franklin College. Franklin College also run their own service from Louth.

However looking at the old service 51 timetable on the Stagecoach website it seems the Monday to Saturday 1540 Grimsby to Louth is also being withdrawn, leaving a 95 minute gap in the timetable of an otherwise hourly service, along with the 1700 from Louth to Grimsby creating a 90 minute gap in the timetable in this direction.
