Coastliner, Cityzap and York & Country unveil details of festive bus services

With shops now open following last month’s lockdown, bus operators Coastliner, Cityzap and York & Country are reassuring customers that their buses are clean, safe and ready to go in the run-up to Christmas.

Roads and car parks in and around North Yorkshire’s town and city centres are expected to be busy throughout December as shoppers and retailers try to make up for lost time and safely gather gifts, food and drink ahead of the festive season.

With this in mind, bus firms Coastliner, Cityzap and York & Country are reminding everyone that their buses are running a normal service until Christmas Eve, with added reassurance from their unique “Clean, Safe and Ready to Go” customer promise to provide the highest standards of cleanliness and safety on all of their buses.

The bus operators’ General Manager Ben Mansfield said: “With traffic levels rising every day and the need to stay safe and follow all the Government safety guidelines, shoppers have a lot on their minds and the last thing they need is to find themselves stuck in traffic jams or struggling to park when they reach the shops.

“With increased and thorough cleaning of each bus, clear safety guidance on board and a warm welcome from our amazing team, we offer a much easier and safe alternative to driving. All our buses go through enhanced deep cleaning every night, using highly effective virucidal mist to clean every inch of the interior, supported by additional cleaning of touch points throughout the day.

“Each bus has its own hand sanitiser dispenser, with plenty of services to make sure everyone can spread out on board – and our customers can use our website or Transdev Go mobile app to instantly check how much room there is on the bus before travelling.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our customers back to the bus as the festive season approaches, and to make things easier, we’re also releasing early details of our services over the festive season to help those planning to travel this Christmas.”

The Cityzap express between York and Leeds returns to the road from Sunday 13 December, with amazing new buses packed with customer-friendly features. After that, normal timetables will be in place for all services until Wednesday 23 December 2020. The following alterations will then apply:

  • Christmas Eve, Thursday 24 December 2020: Saturday service until evening, with last Coastliner buses as follows:

19.15 Leeds to Malton

15.55 Scarborough to Leeds

16.55 Scarborough to Tadcaster Woodlands, Garnet Lane

17.45 Whitby to Malton

18.10, 19.10 and 20.15 Scarborough to Malton

Last Cityzap buses will be from Leeds to York at 18.00 and 19.00, and from York to Leeds at 17.00 and 18.00

Evening buses on York and Country service 14 won’t be running. All other routes will run as normal, with last buses at the same time as usual

  • Christmas Day, Friday 25 December 2020: No service – as our buses and amazing drivers enjoy a family Christmas!
  • Boxing Day, Saturday 26 December 2020: Cityzap buses running fast between York and Leeds – leaving York every hour from 09.45 until 16.45, and from Leeds every hour from 10.45 until 17.45. No other services will run
  • Sunday 27 and Bank Holiday Monday 28 December 2020: Sunday service on all routes
  • Tuesday 29 and Wednesday 30 December 2020: Saturday services will run
  • New Year’s Eve, Thursday 31 December 2020: Saturday times with last journeys same as Christmas Eve

  • Saturday, 2 January 2021: Normal service resumes on all routes.

HOP ON BOARD … bus operators Coastliner, Cityzap and York & Country say their teams are ready to offer a safe way to beat expected road congestion and parking problems as shoppers return this December.
