Stagecoach won't provide Norfolk bus services

Stagecoach won't provide Norfolk bus services

Stagecoach have confirmed they're reviewing their Norfolk operations.

The talks involve possibly closing King's Lynn depot.

The company employs 120 staff and runs around 50 vehicles in our county.

Stagecoach have told us they're working with trade unions to minimise the impact on staff and with the County Council to maintain local routes.

It's put the decision down to "the challenging economic environment."

Passengers will be kept updated about how the service will be provided in the future.

The majority of staff will be relocated to other operators who will take over existing routes.

Andy Campbell, Managing Director, Stagecoach East said:

"We are a significant local employer and we understand the importance of bus services for the local community. We also know that any change can be unsettling for our people. That's why we are working closely with both the trade union and local authority to protect as many jobs and as much of the local network as possible."

"We're carrying out a consultation and will be working liaising closely with staff during that process. However, the reality is that we simply cannot sustain the current operation given the challenging economic climate that we're faced with."
