EYMS Newsletter - Issue 93


New buses

Ten brand new buses, worth £1.6million, hit the roads recently, following investment by EYMS.
Six double decker buses have joined our Hull-Withernsea route, and four single deck buses will run on our Scarborough town network.
These buses are more comfortable and reliable than the older buses they replace, meaning a better journey experience for passengers.
The buses meet the latest exhaust emissions requirements, so will improve air quality in the area.  Recent research by the International Council on Clean Transportation found that heavy duty vehicles such as diesel-powered buses are actually far cleaner than cars with much smaller diesel-powered engines.

The Withernsea buses also have FREE Wi-Fi - read on to find out more on this.

FREE Wi-Fi

We now have nearly 40 buses with FREE Wi-Fi, meaning you can send emails, browse the web, check the headlines and update your social media on the move.

Find these Wi-Fi buses on Hull-York Services X46 & X47, Hull-Uni-Cottingham Services 103 & 105, Hull-Withernsea Services 75, 76 & 77 and Hull-Hessle Service 66.

More Wi-Fi buses coming soon!

New night bus to Welly Club, City Centre & Spiders

We're now running a brand new Saturday night bus to Welly Club, Hull City Centre, Club Valbon and Spiders from The Lawns/Cottingham and the University.

The new journey leaves The Lawns at 10.50pm, and the University at 11.02pm, and takes you through to Welly Club, City Centre/Old Town and Spiders.  It runs during university term time.

And don't forget our special Late Night Service 106 bus to get you safely home again.

Summer buses are almost here

Now that Christmas and New Year are over, we can turn our thoughts to warmer days and lighter nights.

Our Summer Service 120/X20 starts again from 4 March, linking Bridlington, Filey, Scarborough and the holiday villages of Primrose Valley, Blue Dolphin, Cayton Bay, Reighton Sands, Crow's Nest and Flower of May.

Timetables will be available from next week, to help you plan some seaside fun.

Don't forget, we also have all-year-round buses to the coast from across the region.  Why not try...?

Get to the coast now, there's a portion of fish and chips with your name on it...

Scarborough Open Top Buses

The countdown is on until our Scarborough Open Top Buses start again!
Our open toppers run along the seafront every weekend in March, and then every day from 1 April until 5 November.
Adult day tickets are just £3.50, child day tickets are £2, and concessionary passholders also get a day ticket for just £2.  Our great family day tickets are only £8!
Hop on at any bus stop on the seafront.

Bridlington-Flamborough Open Top Buses

Our open top buses between Bridlington and Flamborough have been so popular that we're running them on even more dates this year.

Open Top Service 100 calls at some of Bridlington and Flamborough's most iconic locations, including John Bull's World of Rock, Bondville Model Village, Sewerby Hall & Gardens, Thornwick Bay, North Landing and Flamborough Lighthouse.

This year, buses will start from the Easter holidays, and run daily during school holidays, and during weekends and bank holidays all summer.

Roadworks roundup

There are often roadworks or events around the region which cause delays or diversions for our buses.  When these may affect passengers we'll let you know through posters on the buses or on bus stops, and on the Service Alerts page of our website.  If you have any questions about roadworks or diversions please give BusLine a ring on 01482 59 29 29.  Be aware that most roadworks are weather dependent, so road closure dates can change at short notice.

Bridlington: There are several road closures affecting bus routes in the town at the moment.  See our Service Alerts page for more details.
Pickering: The A170 at Hungate in Pickering is closed for gasworks.  Buses towards Scarborough can't serve stops at The Ropery - there'll be a temporary bus stop at Market Place.  Buses in the other direction are not affected.
Hull: Park Street bridge is closed for repairs, and roadworks are also affecting the junction with Anlaby Road, which may cause delays for Anlaby Road buses at busy times of day.
