Temporary timetables on some routes in Hull/Scarborough

1 week ago Tue 20th Jul 2021

Similar to other transport and hospitality companies across the country, we are finding that a number of our colleagues are receiving notifications from track and trace asking them to self-isolate.  This seems to have increased markedly over the last couple of weeks, with up to eight drivers a day being 'pinged', meaning they must stop driving immediately and cannot work for up to 10 days.

Our operations team are working as hard as they can to try and cover as many routes as we can, but unfortunately we have been forced to cancel some journeys, especially on frequent routes where buses normally run every few minutes (these are mainly in Hull and Scarborough).

To try to avoid disruption for passengers, we are bringing in temporary timetables on a small number of routes in Hull and Scarborough, which will start from Monday 26 July.

The services affected are:

Services 33/44: Hull-Wold Road/Willerby

These buses will reduce from every 10 minutes to every 15 minutes during the day Monday-Saturday.  Sunday times will not change.

See the temporary Monday-Friday Service 33/44 timetable.

See the temporary Saturday Service 33/44 timetable.

Service 66: Hull-Hessle

These buses will reduce from every 10 minutes to every 15 minutes during the day Monday-Saturday.  Sunday times will not change.

See the temporary Monday-Friday Service 66 timetable.

See the temporary Saturday Service 66 timetable.

Service 7/7A: Eastfield - Scarborough

These buses will reduce from every 7/8 minutes to every 10 minutes during the day Monday-Saturday.  Sunday times will not change.

See the temporary Monday-Friday Service 7/7A timetable.

See the temporary Saturday Service 7/7A timetable.

 

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, and we're working as hard as we can to bring in new drivers to help with the issue, although training new bus drivers obviously takes time.
