There will be no buses running in Lancashire on Christmas Day.

There is the possibility that services could change at short notice due to staff shortages caused by Covid-19.

By law, the public must wear a face-covering inside bus stations and while travelling on public transport (unless exempt).

Traveline is open every day apart from Christmas Day, so residents can call to speak to a travel advisor to find out about all public transport services in Lancashire and beyond on 0871 200 22 33 (calls from landlines cost 12p a minute plus the phone company’s access charge).
