Stagecoach to Cease Kings Lynn Operation?

Just in case you haven't seen the reports, Stagecoach has announced it is carrying out a review of its Norfolk operations. This includes the possibility of the closure of its Kings Lynn depot.

The company is to work closely with Norfolk County Council to protect the local network as much as possible which also includes the Coasthopper services in North Norfolk.

Go-Ahead subsidiary Konectbus were quick to step in with plans to introduce a new Norwich to Fakenham service

Stagecoach acquired most of West Norfolk's bus services when it bought Norfolk Green in 2013

First has subsequently announced that from 3rd April 2018 it will be extending its Yellow Line service from Norwich to Fakenham to provide an hourly link six days a week.

Locally owned independent Lynx has also shown an interest in providing replacement services and have stated that any they do provide will not initially operate at the frequency they do at present.
