622 BUS SERVICE FROM MELLOR

Please note that the 622 bus service from Mellor is only a 20-seat vehicle and there are currently 19 students with passes. Therefore any student who pays on an ad-hoc basis may not be accommodated on the service.

 

February 5th 2017

Sent on behalf of LCC Public and Integrated Transport Services

From 19th February 2018 there will be some changes to the local and school bus services serving St.Wilfrid’s CE Academy.

As you are aware, since Rotala Preston Bus (PBT) took over operation of the local bus Services 25/35 extending to and from St.Wilfrids in December 2017, there have been a number of issues.  Whilst PBT have experienced an unprecedented array of incidents, this obviously has caused significant concerns for both the school and parents alike.

Whilst both LCC and PBT can apologise for these incidents, which involved buses running late or not arriving at all due to either vehicle breakdowns or driver error, urgent action is required to address the reliability issues.  Some of the problems have been caused by PBT, however it is clear the contract service schedules provided by LCC have not been satisfactory.  Addressing the issues with PBT, amendments to the services have been agreed to address the deficiencies within the contract schedules.

After half term, from 19 February 2018, LCC will introduce the following revisions services serving St.Wilfrid’s Academy.

Service 25 : Blackburn – Mellor – Brockhall – Clitheroe

The route and timetable will be revised, continuing to operate between Blackburn and Mellor, however will no longer serve St.Wilfrid’s.   Students from Mellor Brook and Mellor will be transferred onto the extended Service 622 (see below for details).   Students residing in Blackburn currently using this service, whilst not within the jurisdiction of LCC, can still travel on this service and connect at Blackburn Bus Station with Service 35.

Rotala Preston Bus will continue to operate this service on behalf of Lancashire County Council.

Service 35 : Blackburn – Ribchester – Longridge

The route and timetable will be revised, continuing to operate between Blackburn and Longridge, with the journeys serving St.Wilfrids improved.  Currently Service 35 does not provide an extended journey to St.Wilfrid’s on Tuesdays, however this will be introduced.

The AM journey will be unaffected arriving at 0833 will continue with PM departures at 1430 (Tu) and 1535 (MWThF).  Students travelling to/from Lammack can use this service and connect in the bus station to/from Service 25 with the same ticket.
