Bus company East Yorkshire are set to improve east to west connections in Hull with the introduction of a new bus service.
From Sunday 05 September, an improved service 56 will run between Wymersley Road/Wold Road, MKM Stadium, Hull Royal Infirmary and Hull City Centre to Holderness Road.
The bus operator said this gives East Hull residents a direct bus to the stadium and the hospital, providing people with more opportunities to travel across the city. Those who live in Willerby will also have an improved service to Hull city centre, with new Service 54 providing buses every 15 minutes to the city centre.
Furthermore, there will be extra night buses on Services 104/154, giving better evening links between Hull city centre, The Avenues, Cottingham, Castle Hill Hospital and Anlaby Road.
Many other services in and around Hull will also have changes to times, helping keep buses on time in busy traffic.
East Yorkshire’s area director, Ben Gilligan, said the new services would make buses a more attractive offer in the city. “At the moment, a lot of people in East Hull need to catch two buses to get to the hospital or the stadium. With our new cross-city service, they can get one bus straight there, making it much easier to travel.
“Public transport plays a huge part in keeping our city’s air clean and our roads clear of traffic, so it’s something we should all support. Next time you need to travel in the city, ask yourself whether you can hop on the bus rather than automatically jumping in the car, and you might be surprised at how easy it is.”
Details of all the new times and services can be viewed on the East Yorkshire website, and the company will also be giving out copies of their new timetables in Hull’s Queen Victoria Square on 08 and 11 September.
