Eleven Preston Bus services are seeing timetable changes from September.


Many bus routes in the city are currently operating to different timings due to the summer period and school holidays and the bus operator has confirmed from 4 September a raft of services will see revisions to services.

The changes are being made to improve punctuality of services, there’s increase to frequency due to increases in passenger numbers and a number of services return to their normal journey times following the summer period.
