Transdev is to launch the ‘biggest timetable ever’ on its Coastliner network linking Leeds and York with the Yorkshire Coast, as it seeks to attract customers back to the bus
with the easing of travel restrictions this spring.

It is boosting bus service frequencies in line with the Government’s roadmap to reopen the economy, while planning ahead for further growth in anticipation of an expected rise in demand for staycation trips to the Yorkshire Coast this summer.

Transdev plans to increase services back to pre-pandemic levels from Sunday 11 April as part one of its twin-phase plan to bring back buses better. From Sunday 16 May, phase two will see twice as many Coastliner buses running to and from Scarborough, with a bus every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday between Leeds, York, Malton and Scarborough.

Transdev CEO Alex Hornby said: “We’re working hard now to get everything ready for an amazing staycation summer, headlined by our biggest timetable ever for Coastliner so everyone can look forward to enjoying Yorkshire’s Most Amazing Day Out.”
