181 Bus Service – back again

The village bus service (Malton – Castle Howard – York) stopped for a couple of days this week as NYCC sorted themselves out after the liquidation of Stephensons. Connexions Buses has taken over the running of the 181 and the bus ran as per normal timetable on Friday and Saturday. Some of the drivers from Stephensons have transferred to Connexions and so stayed with the 181 service.
However, it is unlikely to be the end of the story and full contract negotiation will need to take place. So if you value the bus service which goes straight from our villages to the middle of York and the station (although not at the mo due to roadworks!), please use it or we will lose it.
