Go-Ahead’s East Yorkshire Buses will be taking over the operation of City of York contracted service 12 from 3 April, until 31 March 2025, in line with the city’s Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) funding period, with a potential option to extend for up to an additional three years. The service will launch a new brand for the company, York Locals, reflecting the similar brand used on services in Scarborough.

East Yorkshire’s Head of Commercial Stuart Fillingham explained: “East Yorkshire Buses is delighted to be operating service 12, and we look forward to welcoming our new customers along the route. We are committed to operating buses in a way that helps put our services at the heart of the communities they serve, so look forward to proactively engaging with our customers, our partners at City of York Council, and other local stakeholders to grow patronage on this service.”
