New ₤1.5million 'Lakesider' buses make special guest appearance in Liverpool

PEOPLE across Liverpool will be given a taste of the Lake District next week, when a fleet of new luxury 'Lakesider' buses take to popular routes in the city to promote short breaks in the Lakes.

The Lakesider buses will be in Liverpool, on Tuesday, 25 July 2017. They will run on popular routes, with staff from Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire on board to offer free tickets and travel advice about visiting the Lake District for days out and short breaks.

The 'Lakesider' buses have launched in the UK's newest World Heritage site to run on the established 599 route between Grasmere and Bowness on Windermere. They will offer a new travel experience including open top views, free Wi-Fi, USB charging points and spaces for bicycles and buggies.

The buses all have cleaner, greener engines to help reduce carbon emissions, and are part of Stagecoach's wider efforts to promote more sustainable transport around the Lake District.

The Lakesider fleet will give people access to Grasmere, Rydal and Ambleside as well as stopping at Brockhole Visitor Centre and Bowness Pier. The buses will also stop at Windermere rail station, connecting passengers to the Lakes line to Oxenholme and beyond. There are a range of discounts at top tourist attractions in Stagecoach's The Lakes Connection timetable brochure too, including:- Tree Top Nets at Brockhole, Windermere Lake Cruises and Wray Castle.

The buses will run every 20 minutes, 7 days a week from now until Saturday, 30 September 2017. A 30 minute service will then continue until Tuesday, 31 October 2017 and then hourly through the winter.

Matthew Cranwell, Managing Director at Stagecoach Cumbria and North Lancashire said:- "The luxury Lakesider buses will provide new, greener ways for people to experience this globally acclaimed scenic landscape as they travel through it. We aim to give passengers realistic alternatives to jumping in the car, so they can explore the Lake District without having to worry about driving and parking along the way."
