County Council Christmas Present

Lancashire County Council is proposing an expansion of its tendered service budget by £1mn to reinstate some links lost during economies made by the previous regime. The new services, subject to approval by cabinet and suitable tenders for operation will be introduced on 10th December. Those affecting the Fylde Coast are:

  • 75 - re-routed between Thornton and Fleetwood to service Pheasants Wood and Cleveleys - increased to hourly
  • 75A - withdrawn (covered by 75 and 76)
  • 76 - reinstated operating every 2 hours from Lytham to Blackpool via Wrea Green, Kirkham, Elswick and Great Eccleston
  • 80 - replaced by 77/77A increased to hourly between Preston and Great Eccleston via Inskip and Elswick - then 77 every 2 hours to Blackpool (making a combined hourly service with 76) and 77 every 2 hours to Myrescough
  • 89 Knott End to Lancaster - minor timing changes
