Information Improvement for Carnforth and perhaps Lancaster

Following Monday's post (read again here) about less than useful information concerning temporary disruption to services in both Carnforth and Lancaster there has been immediate imnprovement!

Stagecoach has revised its "Service Update" concerning the closure of the road between Carnforth and Warton to make it clearer what the alternative arrangements are - and full marks to them for including the replacement operator's telephone number on their website. The announcememt now reads:


Road Closure - Warton Road, Carnforth affecting services 49 and 5505 Sep 2016 to 04 Nov 2016

From Monday 5 September to Friday 4 November 2016 or until completion of the works, whichever is sooner, Warton Road in Carnforth will be closed to allow utility works to be carried out.
During the closure, bus services 49 & 55 will terminate at Carnforth.
A free shuttle bus will operate from Millhead via Warton, Croftlands, Yealands and Carnforth to connect with the 49 and 55 services.
Contact Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire for further information on 01524 733831.
Also, Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire has supplied the Bus Users' Group with a copy of the temporary timetable for replacement service 55X, which we have also been informed has been distributed house-to-house by the county council. Whilst this is useful for residents of the area wishing to travel to Carnforth or Lancaster it doesn't help people from elsewhere needing to get to Warton and therefore we are happy to post a copy here.

Temporary service 55X 

Meanwhile the issue of the erroneous inclusion of "University Terms Only" service 3 buses on the electronic display at Lancaster has been brought to the intention of the people who maintain it, who have promised to investigate.
