Published at 15:56, Wednesday, 16 April 2014
THE popular Hadrian’s Wall bus will run this summer despite Cumbria County Council withdrawing its subsidy for the service.
The AD122 bus, operated by Go North East, will be funded by Northumberland County Council and the Northumberland National Park Authority.
The bus will run between Hexham and Walltown, via Haltwhistle, and will connect with other public transport to Newcastle and Carlisle.
Speaking on behalf of the Hadrian’s Wall Country Bus Partnership Bryan Scott, said: “The contribution the bus makes to the visitor economy of Hadrian’s Wall Country and Northumberland as a whole is considerable, as well as helping residents to access essential services and employment.”
The bus will run over the Easter holidays. Timetables are available on line at www.visithadrianswall.co. uk and at tourist information centres.
