Lancashire Services Retained

Lancashire County Council has announced some residual supported service using a retained fund initially earmarked for parish councils to use to fund replacement services. Those effecting the Fylde coast area are:

  • 74 partial service retained but now operating Fleetwood to Poulton, without serving Cleveleys - this replaces the 75 as well and presumably retains a service in the Pheasants Wood area
  • A reduced 75 will run between Poulton and Preston - believed to be every 2 hours
  • Service 80 will continue (Myrescough College to Preston) but will be re-routed in Ashton to avoid a commercial service re-routed to cover when the 80 was initially cancelled!
  • Service 89H will continue between Knott End and Lancaster - but not in the evenings or on Sundays
New operators have not yet been announced. The full service list is here
