Victory for Haltwhistle bus passengers

BUS passengers are celebrating after winning a two-year campaign to ensure a popular route in South Tynedale caters for elderly residents.

Haltwhistle bus stop

Since 2010, the 185 service has not included Haltwhistle’s Park Road on its vital route between the town and Gilsland.
Now passengers have persuaded transport bosses to revert to the original timetable for the route, which is managed by Cumbria County Council, and operated by Newcastleton-based Telford’s Coaches Ltd.
The 185 service is popular with shoppers and people who need to access services in Haltwhistle.
