Some more bus news – 181 Transdev service

After an eventful few weeks, our village bus service is now running normally. The 181 service is being operated by Transdev, the same company that runs the Coastliner service. Some of the drivers have transfered over from Stephensons to Transdev so you will see some familiar faces driving our buses.
The timetable is basically the same as before and can be found on:-
The road works in York are less disruptive now and so the 181 goes through to York railway station again. And the bus stops on Stonebow have also re-opened. Please support your local bus service – great for avoiding the busy traffic and parking nightmares in York this spring and summer.

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.

Update regarding Stephensons 181.

It will continue to run to the current times
