Local Transport Information

Bus | Rail | Airport | Ferry | Humber Bridge

Ulceby is served by a number of bus services, and also has its own railway station. An airport and ferry terminal are within easy driving distance.

Timetables and websites can be complicated things to use. You might find it easier just to call one of the national travel lines for advice. Unfortunately, travel websites regularly change weblinks and timetables without prior notification. It's wise to check details before travelling.

Bus Services in Ulceby

In a rural area like Ulceby, local bus services are becoming more important than ever. The local authority subsidises bus services (2012/13, £854,000) without which we would have access to fewer services, and they would be more expensive.

CallConnect is an exciting new rural bus scheme that's been highly praised for its convenience and accessibility. In our region CallConnect is operated jointly by North Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire County Councils. It is pre-booked by passengers rather than working to a fixed timetable, and a number of local stops are provided (not always regular bus stops).

You must pre-register (it's free) before you can book a journey. You can book a CallConnect journey in North Lincolnshire by phoning:

0345 263 8139

You can also cancel bookings this way.

You can also book online, and book up to seven days in advance (one hour, minimum notice).

Hornsbys operates the Wolds Villager (Service No. 68). It goes between Ulceby and Brigg, Mondays to Fridays (variable), and takes in Humberside airport. The timetable can be downloaded from here.

Saturdays, see the 366 Service. It goes from Goxhill, through Ulceby to Brigg and then on to Scunthorpe.

Stagecoach service No. 450 runs between Grimsby and Brigg taking in Ulceby along the way. The relevant Stagecoach websites we found very difficult to navigate around (or even find at all - we failed). The current timetable (effective January 3rd 2017) is here (PDF).

Stagecoach bus times have been known to change so please double check before travelling, if necessary.

One way of finding out about local buses is to use Traveline East Midlands website but it can be over-complicated, producing a lot of detailed information.


Rail Travel

Northern Rail operates trains between Barton-on-Humber and Cleethorpes, taking in Ulceby and Habrough. There is a bus link from Barton to Hull. There are no car or cycle parking facilities at Ulceby Station.

At Habrough you can catch the main First Trans-Pennine service to Manchester Airport, passing through Doncaster. Also serving Habrough East Midland Trains to Lincoln and Newark Northgate.

For details of all train times, fares and rail travel information, it might be easier to visit National Rail Enquiries instead.

The independent website rail.co.uk has lots of railway information, loco details, places of interest and more for train enthusiasts.

The Humber Bridge is one of the most spectacular sights in the entire region and plays a key role in the local road network. In 2015 it benefitted from a total rebuild of the toll booths (sited on the North end).

You can buy a money-saving windscreen 'HumberTag' for your vehicle allowing you to drive straight through the Tag lane without stopping or needing to fumble for change. Concession-holders can use the Tag lane, too.
