Stagecoach East Midlands have today announced changes to their Hull bus services which will come into effect from Sunday November 3, 2019.
There will be updated timetables and increased frequency on a number of routes in time for the busy Christmas period.
The changes come as part of Stagecoach East Midlands’ commitment to the wider community. Over the last three years, the company has invested £8.4m in new vehicles and service improvements, to provide a reliable and convenient network for the city and surrounding area. The new modernised buses provide a comfortable and easy journey with audio visual next stop announcements, wi-fi and USB charging points.
Matt Cranwell, Managing Director of Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “We are dedicated to providing comfortable and efficient public transport to our local communities. Customer feedback is very important to us, and we are constantly finding ways to improve our services and enhance our bus routes. We are delighted to be able to announce these improvements to our bus network in Hull and hope that the changes enable our passengers to make the most of the city, especially in the run up to Christmas.”
Councillor Daren Hale, Deputy Leader of Hull City Council and portfolio holder for transport, said: “Stagecoach East Midlands have made a significant investment in new buses and service improvements for Hull over the past year. These recent changes continue to demonstrate their commitment to providing the best possible bus network for the city and will certainly come as fantastic news for those living and working in and around Hull.”
Planned changes to the bus services are as follows:
These enhanced changes mean that there will be buses every 7/8 minutes including direct services from East Hull and Bransholme to the Avenues and Hull University.
The new service 2‘s to Sainsburys via Anlaby Rd and Boothferry Estate will mean passengers travelling to Boothferry Estate can choose from 12 buses every hour
