September to bring big improvements
for Beverley and Hornsea buses
Bus company East Yorkshire has
announced that from 5 September it will
be revamping its Beverley and Hornsea
buses to create more opportunities for
travel in the towns.
The improvements, which are the biggest
shake-up of buses in the area for several
years, will include two new services around
Beverley, plus a new link to allow Hornsea
residents to get directly to Castle Hill
Hospital without having to change buses.
The new Beverley Locals buses will link
Molescroft, Butterfly Meadows, East Riding
Community Hospital, Swinemoor, Beckside,
Lidl, Flemingate and Lincoln Way with
Beverley Town Centre, making it much
easier to get between all areas of the town.
Great for commuters, day tickets will cost
a maximum of £3 on these services, and
concessionary passholders travel for free.
At the same time, the Beverley Day Ticket
zone will be extended out to Tickton,
Leconfield and Woodmansey, bringing with
it better value travel options for customers
in these villages who need to pop into
The new Beverley Locals buses will also
have late night journeys on Fridays and
Saturdays, allowing people to get home
safely after a night on the town.
Hornsea will see two new services, with
existing Services 240 and 246 replaced by
new Services 24 & 25.
Service 24 will provide a service direct
from Hornsea to Hull, while new Service 25
will go to Beverley, and then on to Castle
Hill Hospital, Willerby, Anlaby and Hessle.
Sunday buses between Beverley and
Hornsea will also return.
Other services in and around Beverley will
also see changes, with new routes and
times, including new Service 23 between
Beverley and Hull.
• New Beverley Locals bus
launched, linking all the different
parts of Beverley
• Brand new late night services will
get people home from Beverley
pubs and restaurants
• New link to start between
Hornsea and Castle Hill Hospital
East Yorkshire’s Area Director, Ben Gilligan,
said the new services should give people
more opportunities to travel.
“People in Hornsea have been telling us
they’d like a link to Castle Hill Hospital, so
it’s great that we’ve been able to provide
this,” he said.
“Beverley is now one of the best connected
places in the region for buses, with regular
services to Hull, York, Driffield, Bridlington,
Hessle, Cottingham and Hornsea. Beverley
has a vibrant night scene, so the new late
night Beverley Locals services will help
support our region’s amazing restaurants
and bars by giving people a safe and easy
way to get home.”
