Wednesday, 10 June 2015

Buses will serve Great Yarmouth station again this summer, after a successful reintroduction last year.

The number 3 service, operated by First 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 from Sunday 24th May until Saturday 19th September, increasing to a 30 minute frequency between Sunday 26th July and Saturday 29th August.

David Squire, Managing Director of First Eastern Counties said “The re-introduction last summer of a bus service to Great Yarmouth rail station was very well received by local residents and visitors alike. Service 3 provides direct links to many holiday centres and other attractions such as Yarmouth Racecourse and Stadium 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.”
