Hessle Vintage CoachVintage Bus to run between Humber Bridge Market, Hessle and Barton.

Residents in Hessle and Barton, along with visitors to the area, will be able to jump on board a special vintage bus on the first Saturday and Sunday of every month, starting on Saturday 3 May, 2014.

The vintage bus will provide a service between the Humber Bridge Country Park (Humber Bridge Car Park), Barton town centre and Hessle town square.

The joint initiative, involving the Hessle First Business Association, the Humber Bridge Board and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, aims to offer sightseeing opportunities to locals and visitors, linking the town centre, with its ever popular retail facilities, to the two major visitor attractions of the Country Park and the Humber Bridge.

The vintage bus will operate subject to availability and will also provide a novelty ride to the Humber Bridge Farmers’ Markets which take place on the first Sunday of every month. The market has more than 50 stalls offering something for everyone, from a selection of meats, vegetables, flowers, fish, cakes and much more.

Councillor Richard Burton, cabinet portfolio holder for civic wellbeing and culture, said:“Last summer we brought Bridlington’s popular land trains over to run between the Humber Bridge Country Park and Hessle.

“This year we wanted to continue the link and make it more regular. To do this we will be using a vintage bus to provide a link between the town centres in Hessle and Barton to the Humber Bridge and Country Park, which are popular attractions in the East Riding.”

All day tickets will cost £2.50 for adults and £2 for children and over 60’s, and buses will run between 9am-5pm.
