OOH, Have they slipped up this year and registered the whole route as a local bus? In previous years it has been registered as a local bus between Peterborough and Boston, bus has run as an excursion between Boston and Skegness, thus excluding people using OAP passes for the whole route.

I think it could be excluded on other grounds - probably the short duration of the registration. (I think the service has to be expected to run for 6 months to qualify). Councils are getting tighter on paying for OAP travel on services although Cambridgeshire has not yet withdrawn the use of passes on the Cambridge Park and Ride services which I think they could do on the grounds that the bus fare make a contribution to the cost of parking.  They also paid for the Whippet coastal services which were very close to line on the requirement to pay.

I walked past the stop at Queensgate on both the first Saturday and Sunday and 2 buses. The first was full and the second wasn't far off it on both days. But if you remember back the weather was hot.
