Timetables change history


The Western Dales Bus summer timetables started on 1st April 2023 and contain several changes.

S6 Tuesday and Thursday: Kirkby Stephen to Penrith.

The S6 Tuesday service will be unchanged, but from 4th April it will also run on Thursdays. This is because the high demand for the Tuesday service has meant we have often had to turn passengers away when the bus was full. Running the service for the extra day will increase the opportunities for passengers to visit Penrith, and will also give passengers from Brough four opportunities each week to visit Kirkby Stephen.

S5 Wednesday: Kirkby Stephen to Kendal.

To do this, from 5th April we are moving the S5 Thursday service to Wednesday, Kendal’s market day. This will maintain access to Kendal for passengers from Kirkby Stephen and villages along the route, as well as continuing to provide a weekly service between Kirkby Stephen Station and the centre of the town.

S4 Friday: Sedbergh to Brough.

Very few passengers use this service, apart from those travelling within Kirkby Stephen itself, or between Brough and Kirkby Stephen, so it will cease to operate after 31st March. The changes to S6 and S5 maintain the present opportunities for those who live near Kirkby Stephen station and increase opportunities for passengers from Bough.

S3 Friday: Sedbergh to Hawes (summer only).

This will run on Friday this year, starting on 14th April, thus avoiding early closing day in Hawes.

S1 Saturday: Dent Station to Kendal.


The only change on this route is the addition of a return journey to Dent Station, leaving Sedbergh Post Office at 18:55.
