Some peak hour journeys will now operate direct via the A146, whilst still maintaining buses from Beccles and Loddon. First will also be introducing additional evening peak time journeys from Norwich, leaving at 17:10, 17:20 and 17:30.

"Following a review of the X2 service usage from Hales, the number of current journeys will be decreased"The X2 will continue to serve Barnby and North Cove in the day but some of these service will form part of the revised X22 timetable. It will also now be possible to connect from the X22 with the X2 at Beccles at other times. First have said that the current X2 Sunday and Public Holiday timetable will remain un-altered.
The altered X22 service will operate to the housing estates of Beccles before travelling to Lowestoft. The X22 will run every half an hour Monday to Saturday. The X22 will also service North Cove, Barnby and Carlton Colville. Evening service between Carlton Colville and Lowestoft will still be run as the 103.
There will also be timetable alterations to Lowestoft service 102 and 105, however, First call these 'very minor'.
