Preston Bus has announced additional buses compared to previous years with many services running as often as every 20 minutes.

The firm has also confirmed it is to operate the number 8 and 16 services to Moor Nook and Farringdon Park on Boxing Day.

Bob Dunn, Managing Director of Preston Bus, said “we are running services along more routes and more frequently due to the popularity of the Boxing Day service in previous years.

“We understand our customers’ desire to visit the Boxing Day sales and as such it is only right of us to provide a service.”

Preston’s Park and Ride service is also to be extended with more late running.

From Monday 14 December to Friday 18 December the park and ride runs until 9.30pm, with the same times on Monday 21 December and Tuesday 22 December.

The park and ride also operates on Sunday 20 December.
