The Lynx bus company is to launch a second route after claiming it has been “inundated” with requests from passengers frustrated with Norfolk Green.

The service will operate between Lynn, Heacham and Hunstanton.

Starting from Tuesday, March 29, Lynx will launch the new service 36 which will be timed to meet trains from Cambridge and London at King’s Lynn railway station.

From Lynn bus station it will continue directly to Heacham and Hunstanton.

The new hourly service will compliment Lynx’s existing 35 route, meaning that the company, now a year old, will operate three buses per hour each way between Lynn and Hunstanton.

The red-liveried single-decker No35 goes through Dersingham and Snettisham on its wasy to Heacham and Hunstanton.

Julian Patterson, director of Lynx, said: “We’ve been inundated with feedback from customers since Stagecoach Norfolk Green withdrew their direct service to Hunstanton last year, so we’ve listened to their feedback and I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be providing a new service that takes just over 35 minutes to reach the seaside.”

Lynx also recently introduced an Oyster-style smartcard named holdall, meaning that customers receive discounted travel when they top-up online before travelling.
