Additional journeys on Sundays and bank holidays will run between Scunthorpe and Brigg to increase access across communities along the way.

Bus service 4, from 1 April 2024, will run from 9.15am at Scunthorpe Bus Station and end in Brigg at 9.54am. There will then be a return journey from Brigg at 10am.

The 5.45pm service that currently terminates at 6.02pm at Lakeside Morrisons is being extended and the journey will continue to Brigg. The return journey will start at 6.30pm from Brigg to Scunthorpe Bus Station.

Cllr Tim Mitchell, cabinet member for connectivity, said:

“I am delighted to see even more improvements being made to bus services across North Lincolnshire. This extension to bus service 4 will allow bus users to travel to Brigg for a full day and offer increased connectivity between villages and towns in North Lincolnshire.

“This Government cash is supporting the development of bus services across North Lincolnshire, enabling residents to travel sustainably and help contribute towards a clean and green local environment.

“Keeping our communities connected across North Lincolnshire is a priority – we have listened to residents who wanted better buses and more options.

“These services mean people can connect with family and friends, access health services or simply do some shopping.”

This follows improvements made to bus service 103, which will run on evenings, Monday to Saturday at 6pm and return at 6.30pm, and Friday and Saturday between 7.10pm and 10.25pm.

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.
