Stagecoach has announced a new summer timetable for its Lake District services.

Coming into force from Saturday, the new timetable covers routes within the national park, as well as those that link with the region.

As the country prepares to ease out of lockdown, routes with limited services will be returning to a full service, while coronavirus safety guidance still remains in place.

The new timetable also includes the popular open-top 599 route between Bowness and Grasmere – which will be in operation every 20 minutes – and the Borrowdale Bus, the 78 between Keswick and Seatoller.

For those wanting to get out and explore, up to five people can travel unlimited on the bus when using the Park & Explore all-day parking in the Central Lakes zone, and there is also a wide range of one day, three day and weekly tickets to suit your needs

Rob Jones, managing director of Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire, said: “We are pleased to be able to announce our new summer timetable for the Lake District.

“It has been a challenging past 12 months, but we are looking forward to being able to welcome back our passengers safely and in accordance with the latest Government guidelines.

“With staycations expected to be extremely popular this summer, we also look forward to meeting all the first-time visitors.

"Getting around the Lake District by bus is easy and relaxing; take a break from driving and explore the tranquil waters and outstanding scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.”
