The X12 service

Darren Roe, managing director at Stagecoach East, said: “As the country emerges from the lockdown it’s fantastic to see people safely rediscovering English seaside destinations once again and enjoying local staycations to catch up on precious time with their family and friends.

“The X12 service provides a convenient and direct mode of travel to help local people in Peterborough safely visit one of the East Midlands’ most popular seaside destinations and enjoy the warmer weather without the worry of driving or parking.

“We look forward to seeing our passengers make the most of the new service and ask that everyone continues to follow the onboard safety guidance, practice social distancing and wear a face mask, unless exempt, on our buses.”

Tickets for the X12 service can only be purchased on the bus from the driver and are £13.50 per adult, £9 for children/concessions and £30 for a group (four people with up to two adults). Passengers are encouraged to use contactless payment options where possible.
