Scarborough town buses

Published on

From Sunday 15 April Scarborough town services will be revamped to enable some new areas of Scarborough to be served and help buses stay on time in busy traffic.

There will also be more circular services, which means more people in Scarborough can get to the hospital without having to change buses.

You can pick up a new Scarborough Town Buses booklet from our Travel Centre in Scarborough Rail Station, or from various places around the town.  Alternatively, come along to one of our drop-in events around the town to find out more.

Here’s a summary of the changes:

 

  • Newby

The village will now be served by new Service 11, replacing Services 13 & 14.  This new route will provide services to the town centre via Colescliffe Road, avoiding the traffic congestion on Scalby Road.  Buses will run up to every half hour Monday-Saturday, and hourly on Sunday.  Buses will all go clockwise around Newby, via Throxenby Lane, Moor Lane and Hackness Road to Scalby Road.  You can board or alight at any stop on the route.

You can also catch new circular Services 9/9A from Scalby Road, providing a service to the hospital, town centre, and Sea Life/Peasholm Park.  Services 9/9A replace Service 15.

Buses will no longer serve Coldyhill Lane, but residents can catch services on Scalby Road, Green Lane or Cross Lane.
