Burnley and Pendle Subsidised Bus Service Review
Changes to Subsidised Bus Services in Burnley and Pendle – From 30 June 2013
Lancashire County Council subsidise a number of key bus services linking communities throughout Burnley and Pendle. Whilst many of the regular bus services in Burnley and Pendle are run by bus operators on a commercial basis, some socially important local town services, together with rural bus links across the two areas, are subsidised by Lancashire County Council.
To strengthen the future viability of the network, a full review of the subsidised routes throughout Burnley and Pendle has taken place with an emphasis on adjusting the network to ensure these vital resources are better utilised. At the same time, a number of requests from local communities have been taken into consideration in offering a more sustainable network of routes without the requirement to incur significant additional funding.
Lancashire County Council received many comments on the original proposals and have now finalised how the services will be amended for the future.
The Cabinet Member for Highways and Transportation has formally made the decision to revise the routes and timetables – click here
