Currently and until the end of March, The Stonebow is closed to through traffic. Consequently, bus services which normally go that way have had to be diverted. (This is not the same problem as the February Stonebow bus stop alterations.)
The Number 11 is as normal from Bishopthorpe through town as far as Ousegate. Thereafter, it goes past the magistrates’ court and the old fire station, turns left beyond Clifford’s Tower and continues past the Barbican to the Lawrence St. traffic lights where it turns right. At the next lights it turns left along James Street until it regains its normal route to Heworth and Ashley Park. It returns to town the same way.
Evening services that would normally terminate at Stonebow now do the Barbican/Fishergate loop and return to pick up the ‘normal’ route from Clifford Street/Ouse Bridge.
There are temporary stops on both sides of the road by the magistrates’ court and at each end of James Street. The second of the James St. stops is reasonably convenient for Morrisons’ supermarket.
First York ask that passengers intending to board or to leave the bus at the temporary stops should signal to the driver clearly and early.
