EAST YORKSHIRE bus company has announced that local Hornsea, Hedon and Withernsea buses will continue to run as normal during the new national lockdown, in order to allow key workers to get to work and essential journeys to be made.
Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s Area Director, said:
“We will still be running all our Hornsea and Withernsea services as normal, to allow key workers to get to work and so people can do food shopping and get to medical appointments.”
“However, to keep everyone safe, we want to remind people that it’s now even more vital that they follow safety advice when travelling, including wearing face coverings throughout the journey.”
Across the wider region, East Yorkshire’s buses will be continuing to run as normal, with the exception of school buses and some minor changes to services in and around Hull.
To allow everyone to get around safely, it’s important that those who are travelling for essential purposes such as employment and grocery shopping should continue to follow safety advice, including:
- Travelling at quiet times, where possible
- Washing your hands before and after travelling
- Paying by contactless or buying a ticket on the East Yorkshire Buses app, rather than paying with cash
- Wearing a face covering throughout the journey
- Staying at home and not travelling if you have any coronavirus symptoms, however mild
Timetables, updates and safe travel advice are available to view online on the website, on the East Yorkshire Buses app and by following the company’s social media channels.
Those without internet access can ring the travel advice service BusLine on 01482 59 29 29, open Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, and Saturdays 8am-6pm.
