Revised Konectbus Services

The Konectbus website states that from Sunday 12 March 2017 there are to be significant service changes across the Konectbus network affecting local routes 7, 51, 52, 53 and 73.

The alterations mean Caister, Great Yarmouth and Acle are removed from the Konectbus network with alternatives provided by First. Also affected is the Horning, Wroxham, Salhouse and Rackheath to Norwich service reduced to hourly intervals. The details affecting services in our local area are as follows:-

5 - Postwick P&R - Yarmouth Road - Norwich - Dereham Road - Queen's Hills
New Konectbus 5 combines the Konectbus 7 and 53. There will be a 15 minute frequency between Postwick, Yarmouth Road and Norwich with additional routes (Konectbus 5A /5B/5C) serving Yarmouth Road giving seven buses an hour.

5A - Blofield Heath - Brundall - Norwich - Eaton
New Konectbus 5A replaces service 52 with some minor timetable changes with Konectbus 5C providing additional services from/to Pilson Green and South Walsham.

5B - Horning - Wroxham - Dussindale - Norwich
New Konectbus 5B replaces service 53 and will operate on an hourly frequency

5C - Great Plumstead - Dussindale - Norwich
New Konectbus 5C replaces service 51.with journeys operating via Dussindale instead of Plumstead Road/Harvey Lane. Additional services from/to Pilson Green and South Walsham are provided by Konectbus 5A

One of the casualties is the withdrawal of the 7 between
Great Yarmouth and Norwich leaving the route solely in
the hands of First 
7 - Great Yarmouth - Acle - Postwick P&R - Norwich
The service between Caister, Great Yarmouth and Postwick Park & Ride will be withdrawn. Postwick Park & Ride to Norwich via Yarmouth Road will be catered for by the new Konectbus 5 every 15 minutes. Passengers travelling from Caister, Great Yarmouth and Acle to Norwich have First's 8/X1/X11 services as an alternative

51 - Great Plumstead - Norwich
Replaced by Konectbus 5C . 

52 - Blofield Heath - Brundall - Norwich - Eaton
Replaced by Konectbus 5A .

53 - Horning - Wroxham - Dussindale - Norwich - Queen's Hills

Replaced by Konectbus 5B/5C (Horning/Plumsteads - Dussindale - Norwich) and Konectbus 5 (Queen's Hills - Norwich) .

73 Wroxham - Caister - Great Yarmouth (for Norwich)
This service will be withdrawn with passengers travelling from Caister, Great Yarmouth and Acle to Norwich having to use First's 8/X1/X11 services as an alternative,
