Service Alterations Registered ~ 15th April 2015

Time for our regular fortnightly look at future changes to local bus services as contained in today's Eastern Area Traffic Commissioner's Notices and Proceedings Report

The full contents of publication 2203 can be viewed HERE but the main points relating to our area include revision to First Eastern Counties timetables in late May and a new service being introduced by Swift Taxis

Registration of New Services Granted Under Short Notice
Local operator Swift Taxis is to introduce service 6A linking Mill Road in Cobholm with Market Gates Bus Station. The Monday to Friday service will run between 5th May 2015 and 24th March 2016 and invokes memories of a similar service 6 provided by Great Yarmouth Corporation. Presumably this will replace that previously operated by Anglianbus

Applications to Vary Existing Services
First Eastern Counties are amending the timetables of a number of their services from 24th May 2015
  • X1 Great Yarmouth's Market Gates to Lowestoft Bus Station
  • X1 Norwich Bus Station and Great Yarmouth's Market Gates
  • X2 Lowestoft Bus Station and Norwich All Saints Green
  • 4 Great Yarmouth's Barrack Estate and Caister
  • 8 Caister and Gorleston's James Paget Hospital 
  • 99 Lowestoft Bus Station and Lowestoft Bus Station via Kessingland
  • 103 Lowestoft Bus Station and Lowestoft Bus Station via Pakefield
  • 111 Lowestoft Bus Station and Carlton Colville's Transport Museum
  • 807/808/809 Hemsby to Martham's Flegg High School 
  • 882 North Cove to Gorleston's East Norfolk 6th Form College 
Additionally First are also changing the timetable and route of its seasonal service 3 between Newport Caravan Park and Great Yarmouth Seashore Holiday Park with effect from the same date

New Applications Received
Whilst outside our immediate area, the application for a PSV operator's license by Leeds based CT Plus is of interest. The operator has applied for authorisation to use Norwich's Harford Road Park and Ride site for 25 vehicles

Variation Applications Granted
Following the closure of its Rackheath depot in Norwich, Anglianbus has received consent to use its Beccles Business Park site for 80 vehicles
