From Saturday 10 November, North Lincolnshire Council will trial a new Number 260 Saturday Villager bus service - serving residents in Goxhill, New Holland, Barrow, and Barton. The new service is based on the popular 260 Villager service that runs during the week.The new Saturday service will run for a trial period of four months initially.
Cllr Nigel Sherwood, cabinet member for Highways and Neighbourhoods at North Lincolnshire Council, said: “The Number 260 is a popular service during the week and following a petition by local residents, we have agreed to run the service on a Saturday for a four-month trial. We are not making any promises to make it a permanent Saturday service. We’ll have to see how popular it is. So it is important that people use it, after all, it’s what they asked for.”
From Monday 5 November 2012 new service 243 Withernsea to Beverley, operated by East Riding of Yorkshire Council will start. The service will operate Monday to Friday departing Withernsea Memorial Avenue at 10.30am and will serve Roos (10.40am), Burton Pidsea (10.45am), Humbleton (10.51am), Sproatley (10.56am), Bilton (11.03am), Skirlaugh (11.15am) arriving in Beverley at 11.35am.
The return journey leaves Beverley Bus Station at 1.25pm and will serve Skirlaugh (1.45pm), Bilton (1.57pm), Sproatley (2.04pm), Humbleton (2.09pm), Burton Pidsea (2.15pm), Roos (2.20pm) arriving in Withernsea Memorial Avenue at 2.30pm.The service shall overlap the East Riding of Yorkshire Council tendered, Stagecoach operated, service 242 from Hedon to Beverley which serves Sproatley, Bilton and Skirlaugh over an hour earlier than the 243 towards Beverley - good co-ordination - but leaves Beverley just 5 minutes after the new 243 in the afternoon - very bad co-ordination, though maybe interworked schools services dictate the times?
