A £1MILLION boost to the bus network in Lancashire has been hailed as ‘fabulous news’ in a village that lost its service.
The new administration at Lancashire County Council has committed to increase the budget to support bus services from £2m to £3m.
A key priority is to restore lost links between communities, particularly in rural areas.
That was the case for about eight months in Sabden, where villagers without access to a car were effectively ‘stranded’’ in 2016.
Other plans include increasing the frequency of services on routes where there is more demand and stabilising the network to support routes that might otherwise disappear.
