Council issues update on Bridlington Park and Ride and land train services

Mon, 30 Mar 2020

The council has issued a further update about Bridlington Park and Ride 2020, and the land trains in the town, in the light of the latest guidance issued about coronavirus (COVID-19) by the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England.

The Park and Ride bus service that was due to operate in Bridlington from Saturday, 4 April has been cancelled up until the beginning of May. A further decision will be taken nearer the time as to whether this date is extended.

The two land train routes in the resort, which were due to start operating on the same day, have also been cancelled until at least the beginning of May.

The council is exploring ideas for a range of things that residents will be able to do in the coming weeks, and more details will follow.

The council is reminding residents that its Contact Centre is open 9am-9pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to 6pm at the weekend. The telephone number is 01482 393939.

John Skidmore, director of adults, health and customer services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "As a council, we are following all the Government and Public Health England guidelines to work with the community in the East Riding to protect our customers and staff.

"We will of course work to prioritise those services which are vital for our residents throughout this period.

"The council will issue regular updates via its website and social media channels and through the local media to ensure our residents, businesses and the communities we serve are fully up to date as the situation changes and develops over the coming period. I have also asked all our teams in Culture and Customer Services to come up with creative ideas for what people CAN do in the East Riding over the next few weeks and months  - watch this space for lots of new ideas!

"This is an unprecedented situation and is changing on a daily basis. The council is in regular contact with the Government, Public Health England and its partner agencies."
