Until 12 October, weekday buses which go through Hornsea after 6pm will not be able to serve bus stops on Market Place, Newbegin, New Road or Marine Drive due to roadworks.  Weekend evening buses and weekday daytime buses can run as normal.


  • Hull - Maybury Road

Maybury Road is closed for roadworks from Monday 17 September, reopening on Saturday 6 October.  During this time Service 50 buses towards Morrisons will divert from Ings Road via Holderness Road, Portobello Street, Marfleet Lane, Hopewell Road, Staveley Road, Barham Road, Marfleet Lane (Jalland Lodge) and return to The Broadway via Seafield Avenue.  Journeys towards Hull will follow this diversion in reverse.

  • 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.
