An anticipated higher demand for public transport on the east coast has led to a bus company to add extra services.

First Eastern Counties has announced a number of changes to their Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft areas bus services from Sunday, May 28.

In Yarmouth, service 1/1A will be joined by a new service, 1B, to provide an hourly link between Hemsby beach, Yarmouth railway station and Vauxhall Holiday Park via the town centre and the holiday parks in Caister.

During the summer, the 1B will run every 30 minutes. It will mean a bus every 15 minutes between Hemsby, Caister and Yarmouth from Monday to Saturdays, and up to every 30 minutes on Sundays.

Martham will see a through service from Lowestoft on Sundays, operating up to every 60 minutes.

The number 99, which operates between Lowestoft, Kessingland and Southwold will operate every 60 minutes to Southwold throughout Sundays.
