Back on Tuesday 8th May, EYMS replaced their 507/517 Bridlington Town Services to the Old Town and New Pasture Lane areas with new service 4.
The 507 and 517 had each operated hourly Monday to Saturday daytimes, with some schoolday gaps, combining to give a half hourly frequency between Bridlington Bus Station, Quay Road and the New Pasture Lane area. Between Quay Road and New Pasture Lane the 507 routed via Brett Street, Brookland Road, South Back Lane, Leys Road, Westgate and Market Place (Old Town) to the New Pasture Lane area before returning via Marton Road, Watsons Avenue, Jubilee Avenue, St Mary's Walk (East Riding College) and Queensgate to Quay Road and Bridlington Bus Station. The 517 operated from Quay Road via St Johns Street, Kirkgate and Sewerby Road to Watsons Avenue and then the reverse of the 507 route via the New Pasture Lane area back into Bridlington Town Centre.
New service 4 is much simpler, operating from Bridlington Bus Station to the New Pasture Lane area via Quay Road, Brett Street, Brookland Road, South Back Lane, Leys Road, Westgate and Market Place (Old Town), and then returning via the same route. The frequency is every half hour Monday to Saturday daytimes with some schoolday gaps. Hopefully this simplicity with drive growth, and for the likes of Brett Street and Brookland Road the number of direct services into Bridlington Town Centre is doubled (previously they had two services an hour, but one was via the New Pasture Lane area).
However what about those areas that the 4 doesn't cover? New service 5, of which more later, covers Queensgate, St Mary's Walk, Jubilee Avenue and Watsons Avenue, with Marton Road served by the 12 and 13 between Bridlington and Scarborough. This leaves St Johns Street, Kirkgate and parts of Sewerby Road from service 517 unserved.
