East Yorkshire Motor Services have released details of their festive buses for 2013, and they include even more Boxing Day buses for Hull.
The local company’s Boxing Day buses in the city were well used last year, with more and more people wanting to take advantage of the special services to visit friends and family or hit the sales. This year, EYMS will be adding more buses to the schedule by running extra routes to The Avenues, Cottingham, Willerby and Anlaby Road.
On Boxing Day this year, there will be buses to the city centre from Willerby (Service 34), Longhill and Holderness Road (56), Cottingham and Priory Road (64), Hessle and Anlaby Road (66), The Avenues and Cottingham (115) and Anlaby Road, Cottingham and Willerby (154). Most of these services also serve the city’s two main hospitals, Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill.
Services 64, 66 & 154 also run to the KC Stadium, so football fans can cheer on Hull City as they play league rivals Manchester United.
EYMS have also released details of their bus schedules for the rest of the festive period.
Buses run as normal on Christmas Eve, but with last journeys from the city centre leaving by about 8pm. There are no buses on Christmas Day, and only the special services in Hull on Boxing Day. Buses run to Saturday/Sunday times between Christmas and New Year, and on New Year’s Eve a Saturday service will run, again with last journeys from the city centre leaving by about 8pm. There are no buses on New Year’s Day, and then services get back to normal from Thursday 2 January.
