Plan A is to have Stagecoach divert the X4/X5 bus off the A66 to run through the villages. We met with the Managing Director, our local MP and the council on 17th May to discuss this and other options.

Plan b is a shuttle bus that charges the £2 capped fare, running between our villages, Penrith and ?Langwathby several times a day.

What happens next?

We will send Stagecoach some suggested timetables for a divert from the x4 / x5 that creates a quicker route but less frequently.

We are waiting to hear if the Westmorland and Furness Council will allocate some funding to enable a provider to be subsidised to provide a service. We can expect to hear more about this in mid July.
