Two new Phone ‘n’ Ride routes launching in Stallingborough next month

Written by Lauren Paul

Two new Phone ‘n’ Ride routes are set to launch on Tuesday 3 August in Stallingborough.

Phone ‘n’ Ride is managed by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, ENGIE, and run by Stagecoach East Midlands.

The Council have made these developments after working together with the locals.

The new services will run weekly, every Tuesday and Friday, for a trial period of six months.

The Tuesday morning services will connect Morrison’s to Grimsby town centre, while a regular route running to Immingham will be set up for Friday mornings.

The usual on-demand service will also still be available to use for residents.

Locals can book onto the timetabled bus if their journey allows it.

From Stallingborough to Grimsby bus station, a single fare will cost £3.30 for an adult and £1.65 for a child under 16.

From Stallingborough to Morrison’s, a single fare will cost £2.60 for an adult and £1.30 for a child under 16.

Under 5s and those with a valid National Concessionary Fare Bus Pass can use the service for free, but multi-trip tickets from Stagecoach (Megariders, Dayriders, etc.) will not be accepted.

There is no need to pre-book the services unless you have mobility issues that result in a need to be picked up or dropped off closer to your home.

These services come after Habrough previously set up a triumphant route trial.

If successful, the routes will be reviewed and hopefully made permanent.

You can pre-book your trip via the Booking Team at least six days in advance.
