Stagecoach East Midlands celebrated the launch of their new direct service to the coastal town of Bridlington with a seaside themed event at Hull Interchange on Saturday 6 April.
Route 99 will run three times a day from Hull Interchange to Bridlington via Holderness Road, Skirlaugh and Beeford; additional buses will run during the school holidays and summer weekends.
The journey time from Hull to Bridlington is just over an hour on the bus, which makes it the ideal way to get to the seaside for young families. Free concessionary travel passes are accepted on the service in accordance with scheme terms and conditions.
Route 99 begins on Saturday 6 April and will run throughout the summer until Sunday 3 November 2019.
The launch event ran in Hull Interchange from 10am to 4pm and saw visitors enjoy free 99 ice creams and sticks of rock. There was also the chance for people to try limbo dancing and sit in a giant deck chair.
Stagecoach staff were on hand to provide full timetable information and answer any questions about the new Route 99 service.
Matt Cranwell, Managing Director at Stagecoach East Midlands, said:
“Our new summer Route 99 from Hull to Bridlington will provide quick and easy bus travel for young families and older people to enjoy a day by the seaside.
Connecting city and coast, this new service is perfect for holiday-makers, day trippers and leisure passengers.”
