New bus services have been given the green light

Plans introduced by the Liberal Democrat led Coalition before the Council elections in May are finally in place.

Redcar and Cleveland Council hopes a new bus service to be launched next month is just the ticket for dozens of would-be bus passengers who have been left standing for over a year.

The Council has been given the green light by the Traffic Commissioners to run the service, which will link the communities of Easington and Lazenby, as well as the villages of Liverton Mines and Skinningrove, into Redcar from Monday, November 12.

The service will be operated by a 25-seater, with wheelchair access, and become the first fare-paying service operated by the Council's Integrated Transport Unit.

The 784 will operate a return, limited stop service from Easington to Redcar on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while the 760 will run a return service from Lazenby to Redcar on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
