From 3rd July 2009 the popular and very well known service from Newcastle via Alston to Keswick operates during the summer months. This is one of the most scenic bus routes in Britain.
The 888 Service from Nenthead to/from Newcastle no longer operates (as of 1st May 2009 onwards) due to the pulling of the subsidy from Cumbria County Council.
