Bus Service Improvement Plan changes are about to begin

12:58 pm, Tuesday, 2nd May 2023 - 10 months ago

General

The initial changes from the Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) will begin from Sunday 7 May.

It is hoped that these changes will make bus travel a more attractive option for residents, with the introduction of increased coverage and better accessibility across the borough. The improvements aim to provide more direct bus links between the region’s key locations – providing better access to schools and colleges, new housing developments and shopping areas. 

Please remember to check the new bus timetables before travelling by visiting stagecoachbus.com/timetables.

Below are the listed changes to the local Stagecoach bus service which will commence this Sunday:

  • The new 3 and 4 services (between Morrisons and Cleethorpes Pier) – new 3 or 4 service on a Sunday evening at 6:45pm between Grimsby Town Centre and Morrisons.
  • The 5 service (Grimsby to Immingham) will continue to run every 30 minutes. New Sunday services will go via Ladysmith Rd to Tesco at Hewitts Circus.
  • The 6 service running between Wybers Wood and Cleethorpes Pier every 30 minutes (Monday – Saturday) via Ladysmith Road and Clee Road.
  • The 8 service (Grimsby Town Centre to New Waltham). New extension to Westward Ho providing improved connections to Franklin College. Service will also run along Kings Road and Cleethorpes sea front terminating at Cleethorpes Pier.
  • The 9/10 service (Waltham to Cleethorpes) will run every 15 minutes including an extended route to Tesco Hewitt’s Circus.
  • The 12 service (New Waltham to Bradley Park) will operate every half an hour between Grimsby Town Centre and Bradley Park. There will also be an hourly service between Grimsby Town Centre and New Waltham.
  • The 51 service will maintain itshourly service between Grimsby and Louth with some minor changes to the timetable.
  • The 250 service will no longer run to Cleethorpes and will terminate at Grimsby Town Centre. Passengers wishing to travel along Hainton Avenue and Clee Road should use the new 6 or 7 services.   

These changes are funded from the Department for Transport as part of the Bus Service Improvement Plan awarded funding of £4.7m.
