A NEW fast, direct bus link from Morecambe and Heysham to Lancaster city centre and railway station, which will take as little as 20 minutes, is due to be unveiled.

Stagecoach in Lancaster and Lancashire County Council revealed plans for the link, which is due to start on August 15.

Paul Southgate, managing director for Stagecoach North West, said: “The Baylink 12 is a brand new bus link, running every half hour on weekdays,

between Morecambe Battery, Heysham and Lancaster.

“The route uses the Heysham bypass and the new bus lane to give a faster service direct to the city centre, with some journeys taking as little as 20 minutes.

“We hope the new service will attract car users to try greener alternatives – we’re currently delivering special saver vouchers to everyone in the area to encourage them to give this really high quality service a try.”
