The Coastliner routes that serve the Scarborough and Whitby area will switch to a temporary timetable from Sunday January 10. Schedules have been built around the needs of key workers and on the valued feedback from customers throughout 2020.

The bus operators’ CEO Alex Hornby said: “Our message to our customers is that we are still very much here for you – our buses are clean, safe and ready to go, just as they have always been throughout the pandemic.

“We know from experience that our buses provide a vital service for key workers and others who depend on us to reach essential shops and services.

“All of our routes will continue to run, just a little less often around shopping hours. Our first priority is to make sure key workers can get to and from work, and that essential journeys can still be made.

“We will continue to help those who need to travel to do so, just as we did throughout last year’s restrictions – and we thank our customers for their understanding and support, as we adapt to the reduction in the numbers travelling during the current lockdown.”

The following service changes will apply to Coastliner from this Sunday January 10:

Coastliner 843: Leeds – Tadcaster – York – Malton – Scarborough:

· Daily: Buses every 60 minutes throughout the route; together with Cityzap, a bus every 30 minutes on Monday to Friday between York and Leeds. Evening Coastliner buses will run every hour between Leeds – York – Malton only.

Coastliner 840: Leeds – Tadcaster – York – Malton – Pickering – Whitby:

· Monday to Saturday: Buses every two hours between Malton and Thornton-le-Dale, connecting at Malton with buses to/from York and Leeds; two buses per day continue to/from Whitby.
