Timetables are being expanded on four more bus routes in West Norfolk.
Service 35 will now serve Castle Rising Village 7 days a week, providing buses towards King’s Lynn or Hunstanton up to every hour.
Service 39 between King’s Lynn and West Winch will now operate every 2 hours on Sunday’s and Bank Holidays.
Service 48 between King’s Lynn and Grimston will now operate every 2 hours on Sunday’s and Bank Holidays.
Service 49 / 49A which runs from Kings Lynn to Fakenham will see 6 additional journeys (3 each direction) Mondays to Fridays with 2 extra journeys on Saturdays too. This creates an hourly service through parts of the day.
The improvements are being funded by nearly £50m of Government money given to Norfolk to improve bus services.
Around £12 million has already been earmarked to provide new or expanded bus routes and increase the number of services on key routes, including more evening and weekend services.
Grahame Bygrave, Norfolk County Council’s Director of Highways, Transport & Waste said; “Being a rural county our bus services are absolutely vital to ensuring residents can remain independent and access services. Having frequent services from our villages into our towns means people really can ‘choose the bus’ more often.”
