Two further days of strike action on Thursday 18th August and Saturday 20th August have been announced by the RMT union, which are expected to severely disrupt services.
There will be no train services between Skipton, Lancaster and Morecambe nor between Skipton, Settle and Carlisle on these dates, and there may also be some reductions to service on the days immediately following each strike day so please check before travelling.

Revised timetables will be introduced on Western Dales Bus services from 27th March 2022, including:
Bus service 64 between Skipton and Ilkley will follow a different route in Skipton from 28th February 2022. Buses will run along the High Street, The Bailey and Harrogate Road, following the same route as Cravenlink Sunday service 884.
Service 64 will no longer serve Newmarket Street or Otley Road. Otley Road will still be served by North Yorkshire County Council minibus service 73 on Monday to Friday.
Barden Moor Road is due to reopen on 26th February, so from 27th February Cravenlink Sunday service 873 between Skipton and Ilkley will revert to the usual route between Embsay and Bolton Abbey via Eastby, Barden Moor and Strid Wood.
Major changes will be made to bus services between Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale, Bentham and Ingleton from 4th April 2022, following Stagecoach's decision to withdraw routes 80 and 81.
New services 81 and 82 will operate between Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale on Monday to Saturday, with services generally every hour during the day between Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale via Halton, Caton, Brookhouse and Hornby. Alternate journeys every two hours will operate via Wray, Wennington, Melling and Tunstall (as Service 81) or via Gressingham, Arkholme & Whittington (as Service 82). These services will be operated by Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire in partnership with Lancashire County Council, also replacing service 582.
Sunday and Bank Holiday Lune Valley services 81A and 81B between Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale will be renumbered 81 and 82, to tie in with the Monday to Saturday services and simplify the numbering on the routes. These journeys will continue to serve the Beaumont area of Lancaster between the city centre and Halton and run every hour between Lancaster and Hornby extending two-hourly on either side of the River Lune.
Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire will continue to operate their existing Craven Connection through buses from the Lune Valley services for onward travel to Ingleton, Settle and Skipton, which operate in partnership with North Yorkshire County Council. The times will be revised to fit around the revised Lune Valley services.
As part of their partnership with North Yorkshire County Council, Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire will introduce service 583 running on Monday to Saturday between Kirkby Lonsdale, Ingleton, Burton-in-Lonsdale, High Bentham and Low Bentham.
Bus passes will be available to purchase for children attending schools on the expanded Kirkby Lonsdale Coach Hire network - please complete this enquiry form for details.
