Network manager Steven Royal said the service will offer residents of Hellesdon and Mile Cross the opportunity to access essential services by bus without changing in the city centre.

UEA staff and students are entitled to free travel on this service using a valid UEA ID card.

Mr Royal added the route provided new cross city links and hoped it would assist passengers not trying to find parking at busy sites.
