East Yorkshire supports rural buses
Hull-based East Yorkshire has introduced two brand-new state-of-the-art buses into its fleet to show its support for rural bus services.
The two new single-deck buses are packed with the latest innovations to ensure passengers have an enjoyable journey, including free wifi, USB charging points, extra comfortable seats, wireless charging points for mobile phones, reading lights and smartphone holders on the back of seats and wood-effect flooring.
The buses will go out onto two of the company’s rural routes: Service 18 from Holme-on-Spalding-Moor to York, and Service 136 between Driffield and Bridlington.
The company’s Area Director, Ben Gilligan, said that buying brand-new modern buses for rural services is something many bus companies would never do. “Our buses to small towns and villages are very important to us, and putting these modern buses on rural routes shows our commitment to grow and develop them in future.”
