From 2 April 2012 Stagecoach East Midlands will be making a number of changes to bus services operating across the region. Details of changes to interconnect 3 are shown below, full details of other changes will be uploaded over the next few days.
From the start of the new financial year the Department of Transport is applying a 20% cut in the tax rebate known as Bus Service Operators Grant, effectively adding 39p to the cost of every gallon of diesel we buy.
We have been working hard to reduce our fuel consumption and maximise our efficiency as a business. However, this fuel cost increase will inevitably mean that we have to raise fares and withdraw some bus journeys where there are few people travelling. High mileage routes are particularly affected.
Bus services in Grimsby Cleethorpes are operated within a Quality Bus Partnership with North East Lincolnshire Council, Lincolnshire County Council, and North Lincolnshire Council and consequently we have discussed the amendments to timetables and withdrawals with council officers.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience to customers caused by the forthcoming April changes. It is always the last resort for Stagecoach East Midlands to reduce or withdraw any bus service but we are unable to sustain routes or timetables that become commercially unviable.
