Service Changes: 18 April 2017
Affects services 61, 71, 81, 87, 84, 88, X88, 88A, 88B and BH272
Kessingland - Lowestoft - Gorleston - JPH - Great Yarmouth
This route will continue to provide a 30 minute frequency between Kessingland and Lowestoft Tesco, and continue every hour to Great Yarmouth, with some longer gaps at peak times. Between Gorleston and Yarmouth the bus will serve Gapton Hall Retail Park, instead of Southtown Road, for a great range of retail destinations including Tesco Extra. Unfortunately the poor useage, even during last summer, means that we need to withdraw our Sunday operation.
Belton - Great Yarmouth
We are sorry but there has not been sufficient support for this new route which we introduced in September and this will be withdrawn.provide alternative buses to Belton.
Harleston - Bungay High School
This route is unchanged, however we expect to withdraw it at the end of the school summer term due to low useage.
*** Update 14/6/17: We will continue to operate route 80A with subsidy from Norfolk County Council and Bungay High School for the 2017/18 academic year ***
Bungay - Beccles - Great Yarmouth
We are sorry but there has not been sufficient support for this route so it will be withdrawn.580 also serves most stops on this route.
Norwich - Harleston
The 1135 from Norwich will operate via Trowse and Arminghall Lane.
Poringland - Norwich
There are some minor changes to journey time to improve punctuality.
Southwold - Halesworth - Bungay - Norwich
We have made a large number of detailed adjustments to the times on this route, whilst maintaining the same number of journeys. These changes are designed to improve punctuality of operation. In order to achieve this most buses on route 88 will no longer serve Arminghall (for which the nearest bus stop will be on the main road) or Trowse (where there is a regular service on route 87). In addition Broome will be served by the X88 rather than the 88. This has been done to ensure buses on both routes run on time in normal traffic conditions. Buses between Halesworth and Southwold will no longer be numbered 88A, and will instead be numbered 88 or X88 just as they are between Halesworth and Norwich.
Update: Following requests the 1645 X88 from Norwich (M-F only) will operate via Arminghall Lane. The 1135 84 from Norwich (M-S only) will operate via Arminghall Lane. This gives a journey from Norwich to Arminghall for shoppers and for students.
Wrentham - Southwold - Bungay High School
Service 88B is withdrawn. Alternative facilities are available on service 60S or service BH272 which will be extended beyond Blythburgh to Wangford. The extension of BH272 is to be confirmed, more information to follow.
Wangford - Blythburgh - Bungay High School
This service will be extended from/to Wangford to cater for passengers who previously used the 88B.
