The EYMS operated off peak Goole Town Services 1, 2 and 3 are revised from Monday 4th March to serve the town's Lidl store. The 1, 2 and 3 operate Monday to Saturday under contract to East Riding of Yorkshire Council. Only service 3 will serve Lidl, but the 1, 2 and 3 operate as three interworked services to permit through travel to different parts of the town, for example from Old Goole to the Hospital, or the Fairfield Estate to Lidl, and to accommodate the change all three services drop from every 40 minutes to every 45 minutes.
Service 3 - a clockwise loop around the west and north of Goole - currently splits after leaving Goole Town Centre, with half of journeys operating via Dunhill Road, Grange Road, Kent Road, Newport Street and Clifton Gardens to Oxford Street, while the other half operate via the majority of Boothferry Road, Grosvenor Avenue and Centenary Road to Oxford Road. From Oxford Road all services route via Ilkeston Avenue, Woodfield Road, Goole Hospital, Newclose Lane, Thorntree Lane, Ivy Park Road, Thorntree Lane, Buttermere Road and Pasture Road back into Goole Town Centre.
With next month's changes, all journeys on service 3 will operate via Dunhill Road and Grange Road before routing to Lidl via Anderson Road and then serving Rawcliffe Road. Here a small divergence between alternate journeys remains, will some serving a small part of Boothferry Road and Clifton Gardens, and others Grosvenor Avenue and Centenary Road. The remainder of the route from Oxford Road back into Goole Town Centre is unchanged. Newport Street and part of Kent Road are left unserved, but are fairly close to Boothferry Road, Dunhill Road and Grange Road.
The Monday to Friday peaktime Goole Town Services 4 and 5 are unaffected.
