The good news is that 680 Telfords bus service to/from Carlisle, which was due to terminate on 1 November, has been given a reprieve. The service is a slightly reduced service, running only on school days and is also only guaranteed until the end of the year, at which time it will be reviewed. The service runs as far as the Cumberland Infirmary.

It is really important that people make an effort to use this service over the coming weeks, otherwise this service will go!

 

While this is good news, Telfords have indicated that this may only be a short term solution and may still request financial assistance to keep the service running on a longer term basis. The term time only college service to Carlisle provided by Wrights is unaffected by this and will be retained as per the current timetable for the remainder of this academic year.

Please note that the 889 service to/from Hexham will continue on its current timetable until Easter 2015 when current funding will run out for this service.

Wrights are running a Saturday bus to Carlisle on 15 November and to the Metro Centre on 13 December. More details can be found on the Cybermoor What's On Calendar

It is hoped that progress will be made in the near future on developing the Community Wheels project, which hopes to help by offering some community led transport solutions, that can make best use of the County Council’s bus that is currently stationed in Alston.  The local transport group working with Cumbria County Council on this project hope to meet in the next few weeks to identify routes, look at timings and volunteer drivers.
