Buses back in the Bar…

first_imgAfter 45 years, Hull-based EYMS will once again be running through the historic North Bar at Beverley, to coincide with the opening of the Flemingate Centre in the town.The Wykeland Group, developers of the 70m shopping and leisure scheme, opening on 31 October, are providing a new shuttle bus to operate around the town centre. The free 20-minute frequency service runs every Saturday, initially for three years, taking passengers on a hop-on hop-off loop of all the major Beverley shopping areas, the railway station and Flemingate.The bus will be a 27-seat single decker, capable of passing safely through the ancient North Bar.EYMS was famous for its specially-shaped ‘Beverley Bar’ double decks, one of which is still owned by the company. Buses stopped using the arch in 1970 when the town’s bypass opened.EYMS Chairman Peter Shipp says: “We are delighted that EYMS has been chosen to run this from our depot in the town. I hope it will prove useful for local residents and visitors, and help the new development and the retail trade in Beverley generally.”The idea came about following discussions with the Beverley Chamber of Trade and Wykeland. Says retailer David Bird: “In short, the success of Flemingate is very much linked to the continued success of existing shops. The bus will be a perfect way to help customers visit all that Beverley has to offer in one trip and without having to move the car.”last_img
