In between these journeys Stagecoach will be introducing new direct hourly Service 107 buses running along the A156 through Knaith, Marton, Torksey, Torksey Lock and Fenton.

Both routes will combine to offer departures from Gainsborough and Lincoln up to every 30 minutes throughout the daytime, Monday to Saturday.
