From Sunday, January 17 bus company East Yorkshire will be making temporary changes to some bus services covering Pocklington and Market Weighton in response to the national lockdown.

A small number of late night journeys will be suspended, and some frequent buses will run slightly less often due to lower numbers of people travelling.

These changes will allow the company to allocate resources to where they are needed most.

The routes affected are Services 33/34/44, 56/57, 63, 66, 103, 104, 105, 121, 151, 152, 153, 154 and X46/7.

All other services are unaffected and will continue to run as normal.

Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s area director, said: “We will still be running nearly all our services as normal, to allow key workers to get to employment and so people can do food shopping and get to medical appointments.

We’ve seen a significant drop in demand for services, as well as having to protect some of our own staff who are shielding, so by retiming some quieter journeys we can reallocate our resources to busier journeys that are more important to key workers.”
