Market Gates Stand Changes

From the beginning of this week the bus routes serving Market Gates Stands A and H in Great Yarmouth have changed

First's services X1 and 1/1A towards Gorleston and Lowestoft have moved from stand A (outside BHS) to stand H. If there are two buses at the same time, then adjoining stand J will also be used.

At the same time Anglianbus service 61 to Kessingland and Southwold are departing from stand H (originally using stand A). Whilst the 81 departures to Beccles have transferred to stand A outside BHS. Their 7/7A to Norwich continues to depart from stand G.

Sanders Coaches have also moved their service 6 for North Walsham to leave from Stand A outside BHS

The Konectbus 71 route to Hemsby and Wroxham has also transferred and is now departing from stand A. Service 72 is unaffected and remains at Stand H. (Incorrect see comments below)

The reason for the changes is that the County Council is trying to match the passenger demand to the waiting facility and space available.



  1. Service 72 goes from stand A , I used it today . A notice at Market Gates states this , and I asked the bus driver when I got on , to be sure .

  2. Thanks for that Paul. I was just repeating what was stated in their press release. Pleased you have put the record straight
