LLRA have been given positive news from the Transport Services team at Lincolnshire County Council on the tender process for the St George’s bus service.
The existing operator, PC Coaches, announced it was withdrawing from the contract for the St George’s to Lincoln bus route, effective the end of May 2018. As a result the route was put out to tender.
Three tender responses have now been received with at least one bus operator appearing to provide a cost effective solution. Transport Services are in discussion with the operator on the timetable and are looking to firm up the details. Transport Services will have to allow a challenge period as part of the tender process before they can confirm the full details and a new timetable, which they are looking to do as soon as possible.
LLRA will share further information with the community as it is received.
