Lynx has become the first bus company to enter the King’s Lynn bus market for almost 20 years, the Eastern Daily Press has reported.

The independent firm will be providing the number 35 service, which is operating seven days per week. It is an hourly service between Lynn, Dersingham, Snettisham, Heacham and Hunstanton.

Ahead of the launch, Lynx Director, Julian Patterson, said: “We’re a 100% local company and are looking forward to welcoming customers aboard our new service from January 26.

“We believe that our offering in terms of quality, reliability and punctuality along with great value fares will be just the ticket for students, commuters, tourists and shopper alike.”

The route will be operated by a fleet of four Optare Tempos.

The announcement comes after work started in the new year for the £1.6m revamp on Lynn’s bus station. Known as the King’s Lynn Transport Interchange project, it is currently in the first phase of the works which is set to last until February 2.
