Priory Park Park and Ride April Changes

Back on Monday 30th April, Stagecoach made changes to the Hull Priory Park Park and Ride service. The weekday peak and Saturday daytime services were reduced from every 10 minutes to every 15 minutes, leaving a 15 minute frequency service peak and off peak Monday to Saturday, and an identical weekday and Saturday timetable. Express buses via Clive Sullivan Way remain at peak times, operating every half hour (i.e. every other service), and now operating on Saturdays as well, as part of the new standard six day a week timetable.

Finally the main 'non-express' journeys now stop along Boothferry Road between Fiveways and Anlaby Road; combined with the 350 Humber Fastcat and Humber Flyer, Stagecoach now have six to seven buses an hour Monday to Saturday daytime between this section of Boothferry Road and Hull City Centre, compared to EYMS's seven to nine an hour across routes 66, 155, 350 and X55. Stagecoach haven't, as far as I'm aware, done any publicity for this change, just quietly introduced it, presumably trying to pick up the odd extra passenger without antagonising EYMS.
