Changes to Rail Fares from January 2019

bullet Rail Fares increased by an average of 3.1% from January 2nd. I have updated the summary of walk-on Rail Fares from Peterborough to London, which includes day return, period return and single tickets.


Changes to Delaine services in January 2019

bullet From January 2nd Delaine 203 Stamford - Market Deeping will be extended to Spalding via Deeping St James replacing Shaws route 100. Note that Delaine's 203 runs only on Mondays to Fridays so Deeping to Spalding loses its Saturday service. Also the 203 will take a more direct route so the Park Estate in Deeping will no longer be served, and the same applies to Cradge Bank in Spalding. Shaws ran the route for 34 years and that leaves Shaws with just the once weekly Peakirk to Peterborough service.

bullet From January 5th Delaine 205 Peterborough - Wansford - Wittering - Stamford (Centrebus route 9 until taken over by Delaine in October) will be reduced in frequency and the Saturday service will be withdrawn.

bullet From January 6th Delaine 101/102 will have a revised timetable, partly to give additional running time at peak times due to congestion. There will be some earlier departures, and the 1615 route 102 from Peterborough is replaced by a journey at 1645. Route 102 in Deeping St James will operate in both directions via Burchnall Close, Campion Drive and Towngate East instead of performing a loop, terminating near Tesco in Godsey Lane before retracing its steps (apart from journeys to Bourne which will not serve Godsey Lane, also some early journeys to Peterborough which start at Towngate East).

bullet Destination pages have now been updated, and links to the new timetables in pdf format can be found on the Routes page
