Lancashire County Council has announced changes to two bus routes to make it easier for more people to use them.

The tweaks to Service 65, which runs between Nelson and Clifton Farm, and Service 95/95A from Colne to Burnley are being made in response to feedback following improvements to all subsidised buses introduced in June.

The changes will be introduced from Saturday, November 9th.

Service 65 runs in both directions from Nelson, Fence, Higham, Padiham and Burnley to Clifton Farm. The revised route will serve the top end of Cog Lane and Coal Clough Lane in Burnley rather than running direct along Rossendale Road. There will be no changes to timetables.

Service 95/95A runs in both directions on a route known as the Pendle Green Line from Colne to Nelson and Burnley. The route will be revised so that all journeys between Windy Bank and Byron Road in Colne will run via Windsor Street, rather than operating along Skipton Road and Norfolk Street.
