Public transport can offer a cost-effective alternative to travel by car, especially when you take into account the true costs of running a car – on top of the purchase costs, there’s fuel, tax, insurance, general maintenance and parking charges. It all adds up and with great deals on season tickets for bus and rail, there’s no better time to make the switch.

A dedicated bus service, subsidised by Story Homes, now provides public transport options for those living at Strawberry Grange. The new service, C1, will run between Cockermouth centre and the development once per hour between 7am and 7pm Monday – Saturday. Click here to view the timetable.

With this new service, you can be in Cockermouth centre in just 12 minutes. From there a wide range of bus services provide access to surrounding areas such as Carlisle, South Hensingham, Kewsick, Penrith and Maryport.  

Many local bus services, including C1, are operated by Stagecoach. Stagecoach have a really handy mobile App, which provides all that you need to plan and pay for a journey in one place, including a live bus location map. Find out more and download the App by clicking here.
