Hornsby 4 July Changes

On Monday 2nd July, many Hornsby Travel services in the Brigg area were amended, including the Monday to Saturday Hornsby operated journeys on service 4 between Scunthorpe, Ashby, Lakeside Retail Park, Broughton and Brigg.

On weekday daytimes, Hornsby had been providing up to two buses an hour, but to a rather irregular timetable, however the service is now hourly. The new timetable is far more memorable/clockface, and when combined with new service X4 (more of which in a future post), provides half hourly departures from Scunthorpe to Brigg and vice versa via Lakeside. In many ways an improvement, but it is a cut for Broughton and Ashby.

Off note in the weekday evening peak/early evening period is that the last service from Scunthorpe to serve South View and Town Hill in Broughton is now at 1630, as opposed to 1750 previously, but from Brigg is at 1830 rather than 1740. Later journeys serve other parts of Broughton. The 1730 from Scunthorpe now includes Scawby, previously only served by the 4 in the evening period - this replace the 1735 service 95 journey (again more of which in a future post). The previous gap in departures from Scunthorpe Bus Station between 1750 and 2010 reduces to a gap between 1830 and 2010.

Weekday early morning and evening services, plus the weekday limited daytime extensions to/from Foxhills Industrial Estate/Normanby Enterprise Park remain. Also largely unchanged is the Saturday service, which operates hourly daytimes via Timberland, along with a limited early/mid evening service. The Sunday service operated by Stagecoach was unaltered.
