Fylde Village Changes Yet Again

In their latest tender awards, Lancashire County Council have announced revisions to the 75 (Preston Bus) and 76 (Coastal Coaches) from 30 March with a short term contract until the end of October. These replace the short term contracts for the 75 and 82.

Route 75 will be diverted to Fleetwood following the 82 route from Poulton via Little Thornton, Thornton Centre, Broadwater and Queens Hotel. It remains hourly with a 2 hourly evening service Poulton to Fleetwood only.

Route 76 will extend from Little Eccleston to Blackpool via Catlows Corner, Poulton, Blackpool Old Road, Victoria Hospital and Grange Road.

Meanwhile Archway will withdraw their 80 route from 14 April. It is not clear yet whether LCC will procure a replacement.
