Buses will serve Great Yarmouth station again this summer, for the third year.

The number 3 service, operated by First Eastern Counties, using low-floor fully accessible buses, will connect with trains at Abellio Greater Anglia’s Great Yarmouth (Vauxhall) station seven days a week, including Bank Holidays. The service will run hourly until Saturday 24th September.  

Steve Wickers, Business Director at First Eastern Counties said “The re-introduction in 2014 of a bus service to Great Yarmouth rail station was very well received by local residents and visitors alike.  The service provides direct links to Great Yarmouth Town Centre, Seafront attractions, and many hotels and holiday centres, as well as connections to the extensive local bus network at Market Gates. We are happy to be working in partnership with Abellio Greater Anglia once again and look forward to welcoming passengers on board the service this summer.”

James Reeve, Abellio Greater Anglia’s Head of Customer Service North for Abellio Greater Anglia said: “We are pleased to work with FirstGroup at Yarmouth to promote the service between the rail station and the key tourist leisure attractions in the district. Many visitors to the town arrive by train and being able to offer a seamless travel experience for onward journeys from the station is very important for our customers and helps to showcase Great Yarmouth as a great holiday destination.”
