#AYearOfBuses 121: Hull – Bridlington
We’re taking another trip to the east coast today here on #AYearOfBuses, for a look at one of East Yorkshire’s most well-established routes.
Previously running all the way up the east coast from Hull to Bridlington and Scarborough, the long-established, long-distance 121 was recently shortened to finish in Bridlington to help with reliability, with the northern section of the route splitting off to become Scarborough’s route 12.
The route itself heads north out of Hull, passing the famous railway-arch-cum-boozer, the Cannon Junction, before flowing along the A1079 into Beverley, with its spectacular Minster. From there, it takes a scenic route towards Driffield and Bridlington.
Five new route-branded Volvo B5TLs with MCV EvoSeti bodywork are allocated to East Yorkshire’s Hull depot for the route.
