CHANGES TO SERVICE 4

Arriva made some changes to their services in the Selby area and one of these was the ending of the Service 4 in 2020, which served Osgodby, Cliffe and Hemingbrough. 

Barlby and Osgodby Town Council, Cliffe and Hemingbrough Parish Councils sponsored a 3 Month trial to assess the viability of the Service 4, with 2 buses a day (and return).

As this was affected by lockdown restrictions, the viability of holding a further trial is to be considered.
