Bus services in the Lowestoft, Beccles and Great Yarmouth areas are continuing to run with reduced timetables following government guidelines on social distancing.

Border Bus, one of the region’s providers , is running “all of our bus services, with some changes” today (Wednesday, March 25).

One of the changes as a result of the continuing coronavirus crisis will see the 580 bus service operating a “non school timetable” and it will divert to serve the shops at Tesco on Pasteur Road and Aldi on North Quay in Yarmouth.

A Border Bus spokesman said: “Passengers should only travel when necessary and in accordance with the government guidelines.

“On Wednesday, March 25, we will be operating the following services: 521 - Normal Service; 524 - Normal Service; Beccles Town Service - Normal Service

580 - The non School timetable will operate, meaning the 16.01 bus from Bungay to Yarmouth will operate; 146 - A revised timetable reducing the frequency to hourly.

“The following school buses will operate on Wednesday to allow children of key workers to get to and from school: BH268 to Bungay High School; BR020 to Beccles Free School; SJL1 to Sir John Leman; SJL9 to Sir John Leman and SJL2 will be an amalgamation of SJL2-SJL8, and serve as many places as possible.”
