East Yorkshire buses Local bus company East Yorkshire has announced changes to its summer Coaster timetable with more evening journeys to be included. The fully branded buses will continue to link Bridlington and Scarborough, giving both residents and tourists more time to spend in the two towns. The extra journeys will depart from Bridlington at 20:00, 21:00 and 22:00 and will serve the holiday camps and villages between the coastal towns from 7 March.

Most services will run to a Sunday timetable but with extra early morning journeys to allow workers to travel.

Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s Area Director, said: “Thank you to all our passengers for your understanding during this unique situation – we are doing our best to continue to run as good a service as we can, for as long as we can.”

Routes which don’t normally have Sunday buses will also have a special timetable.

A spokesman added: “East Yorkshire’s schedulers are currently working around the clock to get services planned so that they can cover as many parts of the region as possible.

“As soon as the company have the new timetables confirmed, they will publish them at www.eastyorkshirebuses.co.uk, through social media, and on the East Yorkshire Buses app.

“Until then, please be patient – the information is being prepared as fast as possible. It is hoped that they will be available to view on the website from Friday afternoon.”

They added: “Please don’t panic – every route will still have a service, but at a reduced frequency reflecting reduced demand and resources.”
