Cottingham buses set for refresh from

September, with brand new buses on the way


From Sunday 1 September 2019 local bus company East Yorkshire will be making changes to buses in and around Cottingham, making services simpler and covering a wider area of the village.

From autumn there will also be 11 brand new, ultra-low emission buses running between Cottingham and Hull City Centre.  The new buses, built in Scarborough, will feature extra comfortable seating, free WiFi, USB charging and next stop announcements.

The buses are part of a £6m investment in new buses across Hull, the East Riding and North Yorkshire, with each meeting the highest Euro 6 environmental standards to help keep our air clean and free from pollution.

The September changes will provide a regular bus service along St Margaret’s Avenue, an extra bus to Hull via Priory Road every hour, as well as changes following the closure of The Lawns as student accommodation.  The new services are broken down as follows:

Services 103/105: As a result of the closure of The Lawns, there’ll be a new route for Service 103 which will now serve Inglemire Lane and Hall Road.  This service will no longer go into Cottingham.  Service 105 will continue to travel from Hull Interchange to Cottingham via the University and will now continue to Castle Hill Hospital via St Margaret’s Avenue, instead of going into The Lawns site.  It will remain at the same frequency of up to every 20 minutes, with some timetable changes.

Service 63: All buses will now use the same route to reduce confusion when travelling from Hull Interchange, with all travelling to Castle Hill Hospital via Priory Road, Cottingham Green and Green Lane, giving more journeys in Cottingham than before and buses up to every 20 minutes.  Service 63 will only travel as far as Castle Hill Hospital, with new Service 180 replacing the section to Beverley (see below).
Service 180: This will replace the section of the Service 63 journey between Cottingham & Beverley via Skidby, Little Weighton & Walkington, but with a reduced frequency due to low passenger numbers.  Service 80 is unaffected and will still run between Hessle, Cottingham and Beverley.

Service 115/154: Service 115 will be renumbered to Service 104 to make it more obvious that it runs as a circular service with Service 154, and will continue to travel to Hull via Endyke Lane and The Avenues up to every 20 minutes.  There will also be extra early morning journeys into Hull, with the first 104 leaving Castle Hill Hospital at 5.33am and 154 leaving at 5.41am.

Service 106: The late night 106 towards Hull will now start at the University and not Cottingham.  The late night 106 buses from Hull City Centre to Cottingham are unchanged.
Following these changes there will be up to 12 buses an hour from Cottingham to Hull City Centre with Services 63, 104, 105 and 154, as well as buses to Hessle and Beverley.  Services to York continue on Sundays with Service X47.

All timetables can be found on the East Yorkshire website at www.eastyorkshirebuses.co.uk or by picking up a new Cottingham buses guide from Cottingham Library.
