Sunday buses will be scrapped on two routes in Bridlington.

The 506 and 508 services are being withdrawn at the end of the month, with provider EYMS saying that it has bene forced to make changes because of cuts by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The 506 service served West Hill and linked the town centre with Bridlington Hospital, but will now only run Monday to Saturday.

Pasengers have been advised to use the 121 service from Hilderthorpe Road instead.

EYMS said it was not well used, and neither was the 508, which wqs a route only operated on Sundays. It ran from the bus station to Bempton Lane, the New Pasture Lane estate and Old Town.

A message on the EYMS website said: “Don’t forget that Service 121 continues to serve Fortyfoot, Marton Road and Scarborough Road.

“You can pick up a copy of the Service 121 timetable from Bridlington bus station or Bridlington Tourist Information Centre.”

A number of minor changes are also been brought in as a result of the cuts.

The 517 bus which leaves Bridlington for New Pasture Lane at 5.50pm will no longer run, although all other services on that route are unaffected.

Passengers who use the Saturday and school holidays bus from Bridlington to Driffield at 8.15am will have to find an alternative mode of transport too, as that is being terminated.

Other 121 changes mean the bus from Driffield to Scarborough at 6.53am will now start in Bridlington.
