  • York

There are two sets of roadworks in York that will causing diversions for buses in the city centre.

From 22 January for 9 weeks, roadworks in York mean that Services 45/46, 196 and 747 will have to start/finish at Piccadilly/Merchantgate, not serving the Rail Station or Station Road.  The first Service 46 of the day into York WILL still serve the Rail Station (arrives at 6.30am).  Services X46/X47 will run their normal route serving all stops, but may suffer delays.

Also, Piccadilly will be closed for buses leaving York from 29 January until 9 February.  During this time, Services 45, 46, X46 and X47 towards Pocklington, Bridlington and Hull will have to divert via Clifford Street, Tower Street and Paragon Street, and won't be able to serve stops on Piccadilly or Walmgate.  Please use the stop on Clifford Street instead.  Buses will be able to stop at Piccadilly on their way into York. *** STOP PRESS *** These roadworks have overrun, so our Piccadilly stop will be out of action for a further two weeks, until around the end of 23 February, please keep using the Clifford Street temporary stop until then.  We have not been given a confirmed reopened date yet.


  • Scarborough - town centre

Road and footpath works on Newborough mean buses will be unable to turn right from Queen Street onto Newborough from Monday 22 January until Thursday 29 March.

This means that most buses which serve Queen Street will be unable to do so.  These buses will use North Street instead, and then use a temporary bus stop on St Thomas Street, which will be just after the bus stop outside Mist.

The exception is Service 6 serving West Pier/Foreshore Road, which will run its normal route.



  • Goole

Pasture Road in Goole will be closed between the Centenary Road and Elsie Street junctions from 15 January for ten weeks.

Buses will divert via Oxford Road/Centenary Road, and not be able to serve the stops on the section of closed road.  Please use an alternative stop further down Pasture Road, near the shops.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.



  • Anlaby - Beverley Road

Beverley Road in Anlaby will be closed between Boothferry Road and Lowfield Road from 8 January until 23 February for flood alleviation works.  During this time, Service 155A will divert between Anlaby and Hessle via Tranby Lane, A164 and Boothferry Road.  As a result, stops between Darleys Roundabout and Beverley Road/Tranby Lane will not be served by Service 155A. 


  • Bridlington

From Monday 2 October, part of Hilderthorpe Road will be closed between Bridge Street and Springfield Avenue for drainage works.  The road is expected to be closed until the end of January 2018.

Whilst the road is closed, Services 45, 46, 121, 506, 130 and 131 will have to divert via Station Road and Quay Road on their way to the bus station. 

On their way from the bus station, they will divert via Promenade, Trinity Road, Wellington Road, Quay Road and Station Road. 

Stops on Hilderthorpe Road, between Station Road and the town centre, cannot be served.

Service 503 will divert going south only, via Bridge Street, South Cliffe Road, South Marine Drive and Horsforth Avenue.  Buses going north should not be affected.


  • Bridlington - roadworks

Long-term roadworks in Bridlington cause diversions for buses in the town.

Buses coming in to the town via Bessingby (Services 505/506, 45/46 & 121) will use Station Avenue (turning left just after B&Q) and then Quay Road.  Leaving Bridlington (towards Hull), they will use their normal route.

Any buses which normally use Prospect Road to leave the Bus Station/Town Centre (Services 505, 507, 517 & 512) willl use Bridge Street, Hilderthorpe Road and Springfield Avenue, before resuming their normal route on Quay Road.  These buses can run their normal route on the way into the town centre/Bus Station.



  • Hull - Cottingham Road stop

We are having to temporarily stop serving a bus stop down Cottingham Road due to a dangerous tree.  We have had several buses damaged by the tree in recent weeks, so for safety reasons the stop won't be served by buses until work can be done to make the tree safe.  The stop affected is on Cottingham Road, near Townend Court (just before the Chanterlands Avenue traffic lights), going towards Hull/from Cottingham.  Only this one stop is affected, and the stop on the other side of the road will still be served as normal.  If you normally board or alight the bus here there are several alternative stops available, including the stop outside McDonalds, the stop at Cottingham Grove and the stop just beyond the Chanterlands Avenue lights.  The stop will be clearly marked as 'out of use' by Hull City Council until the tree can be made safe.
