Stagecoach East Midlands has today, 24 July, announced that it will be introducing a late evening bus service on the Simplibus Services 7 and 8 between Lincoln Transport Hub, the Cathedral Quarter and Ermine Estates from Friday 27 July.

The extra journeys will provide a direct route between the city centre and the popular Bailgate area avoiding the climb up Steep Hill.
Customers can use their Megariders or Dayriders on the evening services; tickets can be purchased using cash or through contactless payments on Apple or Google pay.
The announcement follows on from other late night services already operating across the city; including services 6 and 9 to Boultham – Hartsholme – Birchwood - Doddington Park operating every 30 minutes until 11.30pm and service 15 to Newark Road - North Hykeham every hour until 11.30pm.
Matt Cranwell, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Midlands said: “Our extra Friday and Saturday evening bus services in Lincoln demonstrate our commitment to providing customers with frequent, affordable and reliable transport options.
We are delighted to be able to trial these late journeys, which will enable local people to enjoy the nightlife that Lincoln has to offer without the stress of having to drive and park.”
