North Lincolnshire Council has awarded Go-Ahead subsidiary East Yorkshire Motor Services (EYMS) a contract to provide a “transformational” demand responsive transport service.
The council, headquartered in Scunthorpe, already has a DRT service, CallConnect, which is delivered in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council. The new contract will take DRT provision to a “new level”, says North Lincolnshire, encouraging use “from groups who have previously not used or considered using public transport”.
The contract will run for five years with the option to extend for up to a further five.
The contract represents an expansion of EYMS’s interests on the south side of the Humber estuary. Almost all of its operations are currently on the north side within the local authorities areas of Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire and North Yorkshire. It operates one route across the Humber Bridge, the 350 between Hull and Scunthorpe (shared with Stagecoach), and a route between Goole in East Riding and Scunthorpe.
North Lincs received three bids for the contract.
