As part of a drive for more sustainable transport and reduced private vehicle traffic in the Ullswater Valley a new 16 seater mini bus service, operated by Stagecoach and called the Ullswater Bus, is available from Saturday 1st July.
The bus connects holiday accommodation like ours around the valley with destinations such as Pooley Bridge, Lowther Castle, Ullswater Steamers, Howtown and onward transport services already in place.
The Ullswater Bus will operate on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays until 29 October. It will cover locations within the following three routes:
● UB1 – Pooley Bridge – Bennethead – Leeming – return.
● UB2 – Pooley Bridge – Tirril – Askham – Lowther – return.
● UB3 – Pooley Bridge – Howtown – return
Further information about the service and the timetable can be found here.
Trips will be priced at £2 single, £4 return. Concessionary fares will be supported. Under 5 year olds go free. In addition combined tickets for Ullswater Steamers and other Stagecoach services will be available on board and the service will be timed to connect with the existing 508 services.
Let the bus take the fuss!
