- No further vehicles were required so no additional outlay; however around 300% more bus stops are called at within North-East Lincolnshire, and with Hull being the largest city in a 60 mile radius, it has big pulling power. This has seen the route become more accessible in the traditional sense of the word to thousands more people, who can catch the service without the need of changing buses in Grimsby town centre. The villages of Laceby and Keelby have been added to the journey which had been by-passed before - around 7,000 people in these villages alone now have an hourly service direct to Hull (or Cleethorpes/New Waltham) - not bad for around an extra 1 mile per journey!
- In hand with this, the hourly frequency is maintained. Without exception for example, college goers in Grimsby know that shortly after half-past each hour from 0630 until 1730 there will be a direct bus from opposite Grimsby College to Hull. No odd 1:10 frequency. No missing runs around 1500 for school contracts.
Of course, now it's adopted the full ethos of the consolidated bus market, it's certainly nothing of a flyer, meanwhile P157 ASA proudly continues to boast its fleet name in its more recent, down-graded role as a vehicle used to transport children in Laceby to Healing School and to transport workers to/from the Millennium Inorganic Chemicals factory on the Humber Bank.
