  1. Is there a new bus route 44?
    I followed a small bus from Bolton le sands down the new bypass to White Lund Morecambe last Friday around 6pm
    Interested to know where it goes to/from!

    1. The nearest service "44" is a town service in Kendal. It is operated by Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire (small white and blue buses) which has recently moved to a new operating centre on White Lund. The service finishes about 6pm so it's possible that what you saw is a vehicle returning to depot without the destination and service number being changed. We are not aware of any new services locally I'm afraid.
