On Saturdays, early morning buses will run at different times to co-ordinate with the 23 and 24 where the routes overlap, and to offer more convenient arrivals in Sunderland.

Service 56/56A: There will be minor alterations to some Monday to Friday commuter journeys to improve the punctuality of arrival times in Durham City Centre.

Service 57/57A: Service 57A will follow a revised route between Coxhoe and Trimdon Village, with buses running via Harap Road instead of West Lane. This will improve punctuality (especially during bad weather) and allow buses to serve the stops at Hope House close to the junction of Harap Road and Salters Lane.

There will also be minor alterations to some Monday to Friday commuter journeys to improve the punctuality of arrival times in Durham City Centre.
