East Yorkshire which operates a number of services at the station said, while there has been discussions, there is currently no funding in place and any further developments will not happen until the end of the Covid-19 situation.

East Yorkshire’s area director Ben Gilligan said: “We’ve had talks with Pocklington Town Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council about options to upgrade the forecourt area of our depot in Pocklington to provide an improved experience for passengers catching buses from the town.

“As yet, no firm decisions have been made, but we hope we can progress this further once the Covid-19 situation improves.

“We’re always keen to make bus travel better for passengers, and Pocklington has recently benefitted from our brand new EastRider buses which were launched on Services X46 and 45 a few months ago.

“These state-of-the-art new buses, with luxury interiors, wi-fi, tables, low emissions and the ability to take bikes on board, mean that using the bus is even more of an attractive choice for Pocklington residents who need to travel to York, Beverley, Hull or Bridlington.”
