North Yorkshire County Council has revised the timetable for its temporary 426 Selby-Cawood-York bus route following concerns over timings.

Timings on the temporary 426 route have been revised

The council stepped in with its own vehicles to provide the reduced-level service from 11 September after the closure of bus operator Utopia Coaches Ltd. Following feedback from users, the timetable has been revised to allow passengers to spend two hours in York or two hours in Selby before the return journey.

County Councillor Don Mackenzie, the Executive Member for Passenger Transport, said: “We stepped in to provide this service following the withdrawal from these services by Utopia. We have listened to feedback from passengers and as a result have revised the timetable to allow them more time to go about their business at their destination.”

The County Council is investigating a longer-term solution to the service and will issue a tender in the near future to seek prices on options prior to confirming what action can be taken.
