  • Hull - Carr Lane

Carr Lane will be closed 10am-4pm on Saturday 24 June for the Yorkshire Regiment Freedom Parade.  Many city centre buses will have to divert.

Buses from Anlaby Road will use Ferensway to go directly to the Interchange, missing the city centre loop.

Buses from Spring Bank and Beverley Road will use Brook Street to go directly to the Interchange, missing the city centre loop.

Service 57 from ASDA Bilton will use Alfred Gelder Street, Bond Street, Albion Street, Brook Street and Ferensway, using the bus stop on Ferensway near the Cenotaph, then onto Anlaby Road to resume its normal route.

Buses from the Interchange that go to Anlaby Road/Hessle Road will leave the Interchange, use Brook Street to get to Ferensway, missing the city centre loop, and then will turn into the end of Carr Lane, using a stop on Anne Street, then continuing on their normal route to Anlaby Road.  The one exception to this is Service 350, which will use Brook Street and Ferensway and then go straight to Anlaby Road, not serving Anne Street.


  • Scarborough Armed Forces Day

Scarborough Armed Forces Day takes place on Saturday 24 June.  Road closures in the seafront area mean that some buses will have to divert.

Scarborough Park & Ride will be unable to serve the bus stop at Aquarium Top, but will be using a temporary bus stop at the bottom of Vernon Road instead.

Our Scarborough Seafront open top buses will only be running between The Sands and a temporary bus stop on Marine Drive just north of the Toll House, so can't serve bus stops at The Spa, Sandside or Foreshore Road.

Our Scarborough Skipper open top bus cannot serve the seafront, and will be returning from Scarborough Sea Life via Columbus Ravine.


  • The Lawns, Cottingham

ON Sunday 25 June buses won't be able to serve the bus stop in The Lawns, due to an event meaning the site is inaccessible.  Please use the bus stop on the main road outside instead.



  • Walton Street rail crossing

Walton Street rail crossing will be closed from 11pm on Saturday 24 June until 8.55am on Sunday 25 June.  During this time, buses from Hull City Centre will divert via Spring Bank, Stanley Street, Argyle Street, Anlaby Road and Walton Street before returning to Spring Bank.  Buses towards Hull City Centre will divert via Walton Street, Anlaby Road and Argyle Street back to Spring Bank.


  • Humber Bridge area

On Sunday 25 June Barrow Lane and Ferriby Road are closed from 8.30am until 11am for the Humber Bridge Half Marathon.  Service 155 will leave Ferriby, and then divert past the tip and straight down Boothferry Road, rejoining its normal route at Darley's roundabout.


  • Leven

On Saturday 8 July there will be road closures in Leven for the Leven Festival parade.

Buses will not be able to serve Leven between 1pm and 3pm.  Buses will instead divert via the A165 bypass.  We'll get back to our normal routes as soon as the roads reopen.


  • 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.

The roadworks mean Service X21 won't be able to serve Harbour Top on the way into Bridlington, and will divert via Kingsgate, Station Road and Quay Road (the same diversion as Service 121).  Service X21 buses back towards Hull in the afternoon will be able to follow their normal route, including Harbour Top.


  • 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.
