  • Hornsea

Roads will be closed in the town from noon until 3pm on Saturday 21 July for the carnival.  During this time, Services 240/246 will divert via Cliff Road and Eastgate, missing stops on Marine Drive, New Road and Newbegin.


  • Hull

On Saturday 21 July the Pride parade will be taking place in the city centre.  This will involve rolling road closures around the city centre for 30 minutes to half an hour, starting around midday.  During this time, buses may be unable to serve the city centre loop, but we'll get back to normal routes as soon as all roads reopen.

Wilberforce Drive will also be closed all day.  Service 21 will have to divert via Drypool Bridge/North Bridge in both directions.


  • Pocklington

Hodsow Lane in Pocklington is closed for 5 weeks from Monday 23 July.

During this time, Service X46 will have to divert through Barmby Moor in both directions.  This means we can't serve stops on West Green, Hodsow Lane and on the A1079 between Barmby Moor and Hodsow Lane.  Please use alternative stops, for example at the EYMS Depot on Station Road.


  • Beverley

Part of Champney Road will be closed from 7pm on the evening of Sunday 29 July.  The only buses affected are two Service X46/X47 journeys which leave York at 5.57pm and 6.57pm.  These buses will divert via Armstrong Way/Keldgate, missing stops on Lord Robert's Road and Admiral Walker Road.


  • Goole

New Potter Grange Road in Goole will be closed from Monday 19 March until late June.  During this time, Goole Town Services G4 and G5 will divert via Anderson Road and Rawcliffe Road.


  • 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.

*** STOP PRESS *** From Friday 30 March, Hilderthorpe Road will finally be reopening for buses leaving Bridlington.  Buses leaving the town will use Bridge Street, Hilderthorpe Road and Springfield Avenue (for services serving Quay Road), and then onwards.  Buses coming into Bridlington will still have to use Station Road and Quay Road, as the road will only be open in one direction.


  • 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.
