The 280 bus service between Preston, Clitheroe and Skipton was under threat as the current operator, Rotala Preston Bus advised it could no longer provide the service commercially after 16 June 2019.
However, Lancashire County Council and Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire have been working together to ensure the service continues. This followed a tendering exercise with other bus operators to establish the best value solution.
Stagecoach will take over operation of service 280 from Monday 17th June 2019, meaning there will be no gap in service.
There will be some minor timetable amendments, but the service will continue to operate Monday to Saturday daytime every hour between Preston and Clitheroe extending through to Skipton every two hours as with the current service.
The route will be changed between Barnoldswick and Skipton to additionally serve Earby, and the times of buses through to Skipton will now be similar on Saturdays to the times on Mondays to Fridays.
Lancashire County Council will initially provide more than £80,000 per year to subsidise the route, with Ribble Valley Borough Council and Pendle Borough Council being asked to provide a contribution to help facilitate the first year's operation.
