More buses between Norwich and the North thanks to bus service improvement plan

Norfolk County Council, 29 May 2024 08:18

Residents living in the North of the county are set to benefit from the latest bus service improvements which will see more frequent buses, and later buses, operating between Norwich and Cromer/Sheringham and Holt.

The increased services which are all operated by Sanders Coaches will begin next week (2 June) and are funded by money that Norfolk County Council secured from the Department for Transport (DfT).

Improvements include:

  •  A later bus back from Norwich on the X55 service at 22:40 to allow a way back to North Walsham after evenings out in the city.
  • Coupled with an increased frequency to the X44/44A service which operates between Sheringham and Norwich a new fast service X41 will be added and this will allow buses to run every half an hour throughout the day Monday to Saturday between Aylsham and Norwich previously every 45 minutes. This benefits those living on route in places such as Aylsham Marsham Hevingham St Faiths and Hellesdon.
  • Extra buses on the fast X40 and new X41 journeys will get you to the City or Coast where you can join other services to explore Norfolk further.
  • X41 fast buses will serve 3 stops in Aylsham - Burgh Road - Tesco and Norwich Road.
  • With the introduction of the X41 from Burgh Road off peak 43 service buses will now serve the west of Aylsham travelling from Willow Park - via Cawston road then Norwich road on route to Norwich.

This is one of a number of service enhancements which are being funded by the £49.55 million funding which Norfolk County Council was successful in securing from the Department for Transport (DfT) to use on improving bus services across the County over the next three years.

Approximately £12 million of the funding has been allocated to provide new or expanded bus routes and increase service frequencies on key routes, including more evening and weekend services.
