From 26 April, however, in a move seemingly unconnected with the above, EYMS re-branded its Service X55, operating between Hull and Gilberdyke via Brough. To mark Brough's link with its Roman settlers, the route has been branded with the name the Romans gave to Brough - Petuaria. The Petuaria Express uses two brand-new Volvo B7RLEs with Wrightbus Eclipse Urban bodies and operates to an hourly frequency. EYMS claim the Brough-Hull journey time rivals that of the train when walking times are included.
What is not made known in the press release is that the route taken by the X55 Petuaria Express heading into Hull, is identical to that used by the park-and-ride service CT Plus now operate, and it won't have escaped your attention that the EYMS vehicles are sufficiently black enough (officially 'indigo') to be mistaken for a BMC Condor!
