It seems some strange changes are taken place towards the end of the month.

http://www.anglianbus.co.uk/servicechanges-july2016/

anglianbus 7 Great Yarmouth - Yarmouth Rd - Norwich

This service will be replaced by Konectbus 7 which will operate the same route and also serve Postwick P&R. Peak journeys from/to Great Yarmouth will also serve Caister giving a direct link between the town and Norwich. Buses used on this service will be nearly new double deck buses with free WiFi.

Anglianbus 7A (Norwich - East Norfolk Sixth Form) will continue to operate.


anglianbus 60H Beccles - Halesworth

This service will operate to a revised timetable with less journeys reflecting demand.

anglianbus 60S Beccles - Southwold

This service will operate to a revised timetable with less journeys reflecting demand.


anglianbus 61
Gt Yarmouth - Lowestoft - Kessingland - Southwold

This will reinstate the link between Magdalen Estate and Barrack Estate in Great Yarmouth as well as connecting them to the James Paget Hospital and the east coast.

The section between Kessingland and Southwold will be withdrawn due to the level of competition making this commercially unviable. This is not a decision that has been made lightly. Passengers should use BorderBus 146 or First 99 from 25th July 2016.

Passengers wishing to continue their journey to Norwich should change buses at Great Yarmouth onto Konectbus 7. Through tickets will be available.


anglianbus 82
Beccles Town Service

Unfortunately this service is not commercially viable so will operate on Fridays only for market day. This is not a decision that has been taken lightly.


anglianbus 83 /84 Harleston - Norwich

Revised timetables in operation to give a better spread of service throughout the day.


anglianbus 87 /88/X88/88A
Norwich - Poringland - Bungay - Halesworth (87/88/X88)
Halesworth - Southwold (88A)
Following customer feedback services 87/88/X88 will operate from Norwich Bus Station via St Stephens Street [BQ] outside WHSmiths.

Early and late service 88A journeys will be withdrawn due to low passenger numbers.

anglianbus 90
Corton - Saint Felix School

This service is no longer commercially viable. Please contact the school for alternatives.

anglianbus BH272
Blythburgh - Bungay High School

Minor changes to the morning journey.

anglianbus BH274
Halesworth - Bungay High School

This service will be operated by a different operator (tbc) under contract to Suffolk County Council.

konectbus 7/X7
Great Yarmouth - Postwick P&R - Norwich via Yarmouth Rd (7)
Postwick P&R - Norwich via County Hall (X7)
This will be a new service replacing Anglianbus 7 (Gt Yarmouth - Acle - Norwich) and Park & Ride 503 (Postwick P&R - County Hall - Norwich). Between Gt Yarmouth and Norwich the service (7) will operate every 30 minutes via Postwick Park & Ride. Between Postwick P&R and Norwich via County Hall service X7 will operate every 30 minutes. Between Postwick P&R and Norwich there will be a combined frequency of every 15 minutes. This will also provide a new Park & Ride facility to Great Yarmouth.

Peak journeys from/to Great Yarmouth will also serve Caister giving a direct link between the town and Norwich.

Service 61 (Kessingland - Lowestoft - Gorleston - Gt Yarmouth) will continue to be operated by Anglianbus and will connect with service 7 at Great Yarmouth. Through tickets will be available.


konectbus 1/11
1 King's Lynn - Swaffham - Watton
11 Watton - Dereham
A revised timetable will be in operation between Dereham, Watton and Swaffham. This service will be numbered 11. The Swaffham-King's Lynn section will be withdrawn due to low passenger numbers. The morning journey to Swaffham will connect with First's X1 to King's Lynn for COWA students, and likewise in the afternoon for the return journey.

Following feedback the journeys arriving into Watton from Swaffham via Ashill will connect with service 3 to Norwich and the N&NU Hospital.


konectbus 12 Dereham - Highfield Road - Moorgate - Dereham
A revised timetable will be in operation.


konectbus 21 Fakenham - North Elmham - Dereham

The 0715 journey from North Elmham will depart 10 minutes earlier (0705) arriving into Dereham at 0721. This will allow more time to connect with the straight8 to Norwich.


konectbus 71 Wroxham - Great Yarmouth
A new peak journey to and from Great Yarmouth will operate (Mondays to Saturdays) with an onward connection to Norwich.
