Local First Bus Changes

Beginning this Sunday 26th May 2024 First are making some changes to their Coastal Reds and Coastal Clipper services in the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft area

Coastal Reds route 2 is to be extended - recent withdrawal 37025 YJ06 XKO is seen in use in April 2024
* The opening of the new Herring Bridge in Great Yarmouth has given the opportunity to extend the current 2 service and provide new routes 3 and 3B connecting Market Gates, via Barrack Estate, to Gorleston, Bradwell, Burgh Castle and the James Paget Hospital. These will replace the existing 2, 5, 6, 6A & 6B services.

* The Coastal Reds service 7 will see improvements including additional journeys and the operation of a new Saturday service.

* There is to be no changes to the Coastal Clipper 1/1A route between Lowestoft and Martham although a revised timetable will provide a more reliable service

Many of these changes are being partially funded by Norfolk County Council under the Government’s Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP), aimed at enhancing public transportation infrastructure.

* The Coastal Clipper 99 service in Lowestoft will cease operating via the Coast Road and will use Norfolk Road in Wangford with minor timetable changes. Additional 99A departures will also be provided
