Local Link bus timetable to take effect 5th September 2016

Redcar_and_Cleveland_Borough_CouncilTHE new timetable for East Cleveland’s Local Link bus service will come into effect on Monday 5 September 2016.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council revised the routes following a review that identified where services were being duplicated. The updated timetables are available on the council website or via drivers of Local Link buses.

Bus routes affected are as follows:

  • 707 – will serve Redcar, Guisborough, Lingdale, Boosbeck Charltons and Skelton
  • 708 – will serve Saltburn, Skelton, Brotton, Carlin How, Skinningrove and Liverton Mines;
  • 752 – this route is being extended to include ASDA at Skelton for a six month trial period;
  • 758/759 – the 759 is being removed and the 758 revised (see below);
  • 772/773/778 – Guisborough town service continuing but incorporating two daily round trips to Moorsholm;
  • 852 – being removed as an alternative already exists through Arriva.

Councillor Dale Quigley, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, said:

“Working with partners, the council looked at what services are already being provided in East Cleveland to ensure that existing Local Link passengers continue to have transport services.

“Where alternative services were already operating, whether it was by bus or rail, we were in effect duplicating. Where the Local Link is the only means of public transport, we are continuing with these services.

“We have published the updated timetables on the council’s website, and Local Link bus drivers have hard copies where you can see route maps and times, so please ensure you have checked before travelling.”
