Service 12 Preston (Lune Street) – Longton

In response to passenger requests, the service will now operate via Millbrook Way in Penwortham to serve the Booths store, instead of Pope Lane. The 2230hrs return journey on Fridays and Saturdays is withdrawn due to low ridership, and other minor timetable changes are made to the daytime service.

Service 16 Bus Station – Farringdon Park

Minor timetable changes to improve reliability of the service. The late-night journeys after 2300 on Fridays and Saturdays are withdrawn due to very low ridership.

Service 23 Bus Station – Asda

The time of the first bus towards Asda during the week will now be 0520, providing an earlier link to the employment area in response to passenger requests. Buses will continue to operate frequently, at intervals of up to 5 minutes at the busiest times of day, and will operate more frequently during the early evening. The midnight and 0100hrs journeys on Fridays and Saturdays will be withdrawn due to low ridership.

Service 31 Bus Station – Savick

In order to improve the reliability of the service, the route around the Savick estate has been changed to no longer operate via Lea Road, but instead to operate via the current route to Ainsdale Drive, then Ashford Road, Birkdale Drive and West Park Avenue. In response to passenger requests, buses will return to operating via West Park Avenue on both the outbound and inbound journey.
