WITHDRAWAL OF 113 BUS SERVICE

We the undersigned petition the county council to at least preserve the current 113 bus service with the use of council subsidy if necessary.

The removal of this service will leave some areas without ANY form of public transport from the proposed date of service removal on 07/01/2019..

This ePetition ran from 19/11/2018 to 31/12/2018 and has now finished.

Council response

We are pleased to announce that we have been able to prevent the cessation of this service.


Service 113 will now become one of a number of bus routes in Lancashire that form part of a network that we subsidise to keep as they do not raise enough money to be operated on a commercial basis. The contract to provide the replacement bus service has been awarded to Stagecoach, so there will be continuity in terms of operation and ticketing.
