More buses are to be run on Sundays to improve access to shops, restaurants, leisure centres and fitness facilities.

From Sunday 5 May 2024, bus service 6 will run on Sundays between Scunthorpe Bus Station and Ashby every hour from 9am until 5pm.

Bus services 7 and 8 will also run on Sundays, starting on 5 May 2024, between Scunthorpe Bus Station and Skippingdale retail park between 9am and 5.42pm.

Cllr Tim Mitchell, cabinet member for connectivity, said: “Sunday is the ideal day to get out and about, enjoy our parks and leisure centres, visit friends or do some shopping, which is why we were keen to improve connectivity on these days.

“These new circular routes deliver on our commitment to improve connectivity across North Lincolnshire, and will be a major benefit to businesses as well as residents.”

The council received more than £1m government cash from the Bus Service Improvement Plan plus funding (BSIP+) for up to 2025 and more recently £965,000 following the government’s announcement of £150m funding to improve bus services for 2024/25 in the Midlands and North of England.
