Later bus to serve villages
A bus company is this week launching a new later service to help two villages near Beverley following a request from residents. Villagers in Cherry Burton appealed to councils and bus operators to provide a later service back from Beverley on weekdays, as the last bus currently departs from the town at 3.35pm during school term times, and 3pm during school holidays.
The issue was raised at a public meeting in Cherry Burton and, as a result, Beverley-based Acklams Coaches has agreed to divert one of its existing buses to provide a later journey to Cherry Burton and Etton from Beverley.
The new service was due to start on Monday this week and will run from Monday to Friday, departing from Beverley Sow Hill Bus Station at 5.10pm during school term times. If it proves successful, Acklams Coaches has indicated there may be a possibility of extending the service to run all year round from Monday to Saturday.
