Buses return to usual routes

The 1, 2and 20 bus services are back on their usual routes

Passengers using the 1, 2, and 20 bus services will be pleased to know that the buses have returned to their usual routes.

As a reminder, people are being given the chance to try the 1, 2 or 20 bus service for free for a day up until Saturday 4 May.

Try for Free vouchers are being handed out in Lord Street, Corporation Road and Gilbey Road and surrounding areas to encourage local people to start using the service again. The vouchers can be exchanged for a Grimsby dayrider pass on the 1, 2, or 20 bus services.

North East Lincolnshire Council, Stagecoach and City of Hull and Humber Environmental Forum have provided the vouchers.

Bus services have been on diversion since early February when Northern Power Grid started essential works in Boulevard Avenue, Grimsby. They had to be diverted from Lord Street, Corporation Road, Gilbey Road, Elsenham Road and New Haven Terrace.

The three services run along a route linking Great Coates, Europarc, Grimsby town centre and Cleethorpes.

Cllr Peter Wheatley, portfolio holder Regeneration and Environment at North East Lincolnshire Council, said:

“We’re offering free dayrider passes for the 1, 2 and 20 bus services as an incentive to encourage more people onto their local buses. If you live or work in an area served by the 1, 2, or 20 buses, why not pick up one of the Try for Free vouchers and give the services a go?”
