Cumbria County Council has published new bus timetables which came into effect on Monday the 23rd of March 2020. This is due to fewer drivers being available and also significant falls in usage. At present the 563 Bus Service remains unchanged. The bus timetables can be accessed here.
We are seeing many communities and individuals volunteering to support friends, families and neighbours during the COVID-19 outbreak. They are providing an important and much valued service, which we are grateful for. A guide to supporting others in your community has been produced to offer guidance to volunteers, it can be accessed here.
