I’ve received the following update regarding the replacement for the 55 and X5 Bus Services.
Jake Wilde, Clerk to Gilberdyke Parish Council
Further to my email of 2nd March 2022 I am now in a position to update you on the outcome of the tenders the Council invited for a bus service to replace the service being withdrawn by East Yorkshire Buses.
The contract has been awarded to East Yorkshire Buses, however the timetable will be significantly different to that currently provided. I have attached a copy of the new timetable for your information. We have been able to retain an off-peak service, hourly between Elloughton and Gilberdyke, two-hourly between Gilberdyke and Goole, very similar to the current off-peak service. This will operate Monday to Saturday. This is an improvement on the current Saturday service between Gilberdyke and Goole. The new timetable will commence on Monday 11th April 2022.
Please feel free to circulate the timetable within the parish. I have also sent copies of the timetable to residents who contacted me and provided either an email or postal address. Please let me know if you need any further information.
