Norwich Park and Ride changes from January 11th 2016

Changes are forthcoming from January 11th 2015
Yet more changes forthcoming to bus services in Norwich, with news released today from Konectbus of changes to the Norwich Park and Ride network from January 11th 2016.

501 (Norwich Airport to Norwich and Thickthorn to Norwich)
The 06:40 Monday to Friday departure from Norwich Airport will now depart at 06:35, thus allowing people to get to work by 07:00. There are revisions on the Saturday timetable.

503 (Postwick to Norwich and County Hall)
The service is rerouted so that all journeys operate from Postwick to Norwich Bus Station via the A47 in both directions via County Hall. As a result, Thorpe Road (for the Rail Station) and Castle Meadow will no longer be served. Konectbus say that they apologise for the disreuption to the 503 in the wake of the Postwick Junction roadworks since they began operating the service from Monday 7th September and hope that this change will improve reliability. The change of route is claimed to be because of low passengers numbers.

Service 512 for County Hall is withdrawn due to low usage
511 (Costessey to UEA)
The timetable is to be revised considerably to match the timings of University of East Anglia lecture times. Buses are timed to depart at 15 and 45 minutes past the hour to match lectures ending 15 minutes prior. The 07:50 and 08:25 departures from Costessey will depart 5 minutes earlier to improve punctuality during the morning peak.

512 (Harford to County Hall)
The service is withdrawn due to low passengers numbers. Passengers wishing to use Park and Ride to County Hall are advised to use service 503 from County Hall.
