A raft of new bus journeys are set to launch across the East Riding from this weekend thanks to funding from East Riding of Yorkshire Council. 

Extra runs are being added to the routes of nine bus services that already carry passengers, together with the creation of three brand new services, starting from Sunday 28 January. 

They include new daytime, evening or weekend journeys, including services running in the Bridlington, Beverley, Withernsea, Driffield, South Cave, Hessle and Pocklington areas. 

The improvements have been made possible thanks to the council being awarded Government funding of £2.4m over two years from the Department for Transport through its Bus Service Improvement Plan Plus (BSIP+) programme. 

All the services are operated by East Yorkshire buses. 

The new journeys follow extra evening and weekend improvements already made to six bus services in November. 

Councillor Paul West, the council’s cabinet member for environment and transport said: “I’m delighted we can make these extra journeys possible for the benefit of passengers travelling across the East Riding. 

“We hope they will make a real difference to people who rely on buses to get around and be well used.” 

The new bus journeys are:
