Stagecoach in Lancaster will introduce further improvements to local services as a result of customer feedback. The following services are affected:

Service 3, 4 & 3A

• Service 4 will no longer serve Lancaster Railway Station.
• Monday to Saturday daytime Service 3A has been introduced and serves Lancaster Railway Station from the University every 30-minutes.  The Service continues from the Railway Station back to the University via Lancaster Bus Station as Service 3.  Please be advised that early morning journeys on Saturday's differ from the Monday - Friday timetable.
• University operation dates have also been extended to support staff & students still on campus during vacation time. ‘UNI’ journeys will operate for 1 week after and 1 week before the University times.

Further minor changes will be made to Service 3A/3 in the coming weeks.  Changes will be that Service 3A will terminate at Lancaster Railway Station.  A 'new' Service 3A will commence from the Railway Station to the University via The Quay & Lancaster Bus Station, replacing the current 15 & 45 minutes past each hour Service 3.  This will reduce the current journey timeS between the Railway Station and the University from 33 minutes to 27 minutes.
