Good news about Saturday 563 bus service

The 563 Saturday bus service, operated by Stagecoach, has proved popular and will now continue to run until April 2024 and hopefully beyond. The service started on 1 April 2023 and operates between Kirkby Stephen and Penrith, calling at Brough, Warcop, Appleby, Kirkby Thore and Temple Sowerby. It was initiated by Kirkby Stephen Town Council with support from Town and Parish Councils along the route and the Friends of the Settle-Carlisle Line.

Maximum single fares will remain at £2 on the 563 and many other bus services in Cumbria until 31 December 2024. All concessionary passes such as NOW Cards are still accepted as usual.

Details of the 563 Saturday timetable and 563 Weekday (Monday to Friday) timetable are available as a leaflet at various community locatIons and on
