The buses were due to finish for the year on September 6, but they have been so busy this summer that the operator has decided to continue running them into the autumn.
The Beachcomber, which runs along the seafront between North and South bays, was suspended during lockdown, but since returning in July it has carried tens of thousands of passengers.
Ben Gilligan, area director for Beachcomber’s parent company East Yorkshire, said: “Since lockdown lifted people have flocked to Scarborough for day trips and ‘staycations’, and an open top bus ride along the seafront has been part of making sure they have a great experience when they’re here.”
“Given that many people have had to holiday close to home this year, we expect Scarborough’s tourism boom to continue into autumn, and we’ll continue running our open top buses as long as the demand is there. We hope this helps people realise that Scarborough is open for business and has plenty for people to do when they visit.”
