Evening & Sunday buses in King's Lynn and Hunstanton are going green!

From Sunday 10th April most evening and Sunday buses in King's Lynn and Hunstanton will no longer be operated First, they will instead be operated by Norfolk Green

Why is the operator changing?
The evening and Sunday buses are operated under contract to Norfolk County Council who provide funding towards the services, the change of operator is due to recent retendering of these services which resulted in Norfolk Green gaining the contract.

What is changing?
Norfolk Green will be operating evening buses 7 days a week on the 40A to Hunstanton, 42A (which will be numbered FairsteadOne to match their daytime service) to Fairstead & QE Hospital, 43 to Reffley & North Wootton and the 44 (which will be renumbered North Lynn Too! to match their daytime service) to North Lynn.

Sunday daytime services on the 43 and 44 (renamed North Lynn Too) will also be operated by Norfolk Green.

NOTE: First will continue to operate their commercial daytime journeys on the Hunstanton route, 42, 43 and 44 despite recent information in the press that was infact incorrect.
