LLRA has been alerted to a likely change in bus operator for the St Georges and West End bus service. Current operator, PC Coaches, has given notice to Lincolnshire County Council that it is withdrawing from operating the St George’s service completely at the end of May 2018. The service currently receives some financial support from Lincolnshire County Council to assist PC coaches in serving the West End and St Georges.
Feedback from Lincolnshire County Council is that it is their intention to provide a replacement bus service when the current service ends. It is possible the route may go out to tender and there is a potential risk that any replacement service could make changes to route and timetable. The County Council are currently surveying the service and how it is used.
LLRA has raised concerns with our County and City Councillors about the importance of maintaining this service and will be kept updated on the situation by the County Council. We will share any further news as we receive it.
