New bus service launched for Withernsea area

A new bus service is to begin next month taking passengers between Withernsea and Beverley, and the villages in between.

East Yorkshire Council will be introducing the Service 243 bus from Tuesday, September 6.

The service will run on Tuesdays only and will be operated by North Holderness Community Transport.

A similar service was in operation before the Covid pandemic, and the usage of the bus will be monitored to see how well used it is.

Councillor Claire Holmes, the council’s portfolio holder for planning, infrastructure and housing, said: “We’ve listened to the residents of Withernsea and funded this limited bus service to help them get to Beverley and the villages in between, and we hope it’s going to be well used.”

The bus will leave Withernsea (Memorial Avenue) at 9.30am, calling at Roos (9.40am), Burton Pidsea (9.48am), Lelley (9.53am), Sproatley (10am), Aldbrough (10.10am), Withernwick (10.25am), Rise (10.30am), Routh (10.45am), arriving into Beverley bus station at 11am.

The return journey leaves Beverley bus station at 1.15pm and serves the same villages, arriving back in Withernsea at 14.45pm.
