Travel around West Norfolk with Lynx

See the Lynx Network Map

From Sunday 29th April, there will be a number of significant changes to bus services across Norfolk as a result of Stagecoach in Norfolk's withdrawal from most routes in the area.

Lynx, who already operate their flagship routes between King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Downham Market, Marham & Gayton will continue to run these established routes, with new services expanding the Lynx network to Fairstead, Wisbech, Emneth, The Rudhams and Fakenham.

A new Coastliner service will also connect King's Lynn to Hunstanton & Wells-next-the-Sea before moving on to Fakenham. This replaces the existing Coasthopper service with through tickets available between Wells-next-the-Sea and Cromer with Sanders Coaches.

Summary of changes
