As promised back in July when Andy's Bus Blog announced Konectbus were coming to King's Lynn, today I am able to bring you full details of the new services which start on Monday 5th September 2011.

These services are an excellent new addition to the West Norfolk bus scene and provides new handy cross county links between the Konectbus and Norfolk Green networks, it also provides the first direct link between King's Lynn and Watton in years!

I will be sampling the new service on its first day so look out on the blog on the 5th or 6th September for a full report on the services first day of operation!

Many thanks to Julian Patterson at Konectbus for the timetable
