Bourne to Lincoln or Spalding to Skegness? Readers share the bus services they would like to see introduced in Lincolnshire

Improved bus services are currently being introduced in parts of the county.

The Spalding-Peterborough, Lincoln-Boston and Grimsby-Market Rasen routes will receive more regular buses.

IntoTown bus services are also being improved in a number of areas, including Stamford, Grantham, Boston, Skegness and Gainsborough.

These improvements have been funded by Bus Service Improvement Plan and Network North, which will see more than £8 million invested over two years.

Crowland resident Rodney Sadd, who has campaigned for the Peterbrorough-Spalding service to return to an hourly route, said he was ‘well pleased’ with the news.

The Boston-Lincolns service is also seeing a ‘big uptake’, according to Coun Richard Davies, executive member for Transport at Lincolnshire County Council.

However, readers have had their say, suggesting routes they would like to see improved or introduced.

“Kings Lynn to Spalding certainly needs upgrading, no early morning for workers or later night ones,” said Avril Barker.

Dale Wootton said he would like to see an ‘improved service Boston to Spalding at weekends’.

Travis Vinicombe also shared his thoughts.

“How about a Bourne to Lincoln service?” he questioned.

Amanda Walker responded saying ‘via Sleaford - that would be amazing’.

Stephen Helliwell would love to be able to reach the coast from South Holland.

“Shame theirs no run from Spalding to Skegness,” he said.

Stagecoach were operating a Spalding Service until last summer, when it was axed for not being ‘viable’.

Reader Gill Harker welcomed the return of the Spalding-Peterborough service but wished there would be a tweak to the route.

“Love to use it if it ever came to Stretton,” she said.
