Unfortunately, the Wicstun Express X4 which used to run from York through Newbald and on to Hull (and vice versa) has been removed from service due to a lack of regular passengers. This is a sad loss to the village but it was impossible for the bus company to keep this private service running, when it was making a loss in excess of £100 a day.

Newbald Parish Council’s Public Transport Champion, Cllr. Elsie Huntington, has been working closely with Sancton Parish Council’s equivalent to arrange a new bus service via a company called Beverley Community Lift. This bus service, which will initially run a pilot project for 12 months, will link South Cave, Hotham, Newbald, Sancton and Market Weighton.  The project has secured funding from the Sober Hill Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund. It is hoped that this service will help to plug the gap created by the cancellation of the bus services that used to run through Newbald. The Parish Council is aware of many residents, especially more elderly ones, who were heavily reliant on bus services to get out and about and are now much more isolated.
