Bus service 502 & 504

Find a link below which has been released by ERYC regarding the new bus service being provided in Bempton and Buckton:-
Bus services 504 and 502 currently operate between Buckton, Bempton and Bridlington. Service 504 operates daily from Mondays to Saturdays.  This is a commercial service operated by East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) which does not receive any Council subsidy.  Unfortunately however, EYMS has decided to withdraw the service, and gave notice of its cancellation to the Office of the Traffic Commissioner on 08 March 2018.  The last service will operate on Saturday 05 May 2018.

Service 502 operates Monday to Saturday along the same route in the evenings.  This service is currently subsidised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  However, given EYMS’s decision to terminate the daytime services, the Council has decided to cease providing subsidy for the evening service and transfer this subsidy in order to maintain a daytime connection to Bridlington for residents of Buckton and Bempton.  The council feels that maintaining a link to health facilities, shopping and other key facilities during the day for residents is the best way to use the resources currently available to it for the purpose of supporting a bus service for the two villages.  

As a result, the Council is currently seeking tenders for a range of service options to maintain bus connections between Bempton, Buckton and Bridlington.  Depending on the cost of tenders received, the Council will consider what level of service it can secure for residents, given the funds available to it for this purpose.  It is hoped that a new service can commence operation on 08 May 2018, and we will inform residents once we have secured a contract for its operation.
