Bus timetables for Cumbria

Pay Less to Travel by bus this Winter

As part of a Government initiative, a maximum £2 Single fare will apply on many bus services across Cumbria until 31st March 2023

Participating operators : Stagecoach; Arriva; Blueworks; Cumbria Classic Coaches; Go North East; Kirkby Lonsdale Coaches; Western Dales Bus 

Please note 

  • Normal fares are expected to be restored from April 2023, when the funding is due to cease.
  • In line with the rules of the scheme the £2 fare does not apply on services which only run on Schooldays 
  • Only the operators listed above are participating in the scheme, so normal fares will continue to apply on all other services   


To get the timetable for your service, type either the service number or the town or village you wish to travel to or from into the Search box, then press "Go".
