From Monday 24th July, York Pullman services 36 and X36 have two small but welcome changes.
On a Saturday the first and last journeys from Sutton upon Derwent will start back in the East Riding village of Melbourne, at 0835 and 1625, and the last journey from York at 1515 will extend from Sutton upon Derwent to Melbourne. This reinstates a through shopping link from Melbourne to York that was lost in the East Riding of Yorkshire Council bus funding cuts at the start of April. Melbourne had enjoyed such a service on Wednesdays and Saturdays via EYMS service 195, and on Tuesday afternoons by catching the EYMS 195 into York and returning on York Pullman's peak time X36. However since the cuts, the only shopping link to/from York has been on a Thursday and requires a change of bus from service 195 to service 196 en-route.
During the school summer holidays, some weekday journeys are also being diverted via York Maze, with consequential minor retimings as a result.
