All aboard soccer bus

MORECAMBE Heritage Bus Company is coming to the rescue of Shrimps fans looking for an easier way to get to the Globe Arena.

This Saturday, October 8, when Morecambe FC host AFC Wimbledon, it is launching the new service in association with Fans’ Club Morecambe.

The bus will start at Lancaster University at 1pm and travel along the regular 2A route with a small diversion to pick up fans on Bowerham Road.

The service will continue along Torrisholme Road and to the Globe Arena prior to doing a loop of Morecambe and can be flagged down from any bus stop on the route.

The aims are to encourage more fans to watch the Shrimps by enabling them to get direct to the ground, reducing personal car use and easing congestion and parking issues around the Globe.
