What You Have Said about Dalston Bus Consultation

Reference Date Entered Subject
140 17 August 2008 Dalston Bus Consultation
I moved to Dalston from Bolton in June and wanted to give my impressions (as a newcomer) to the bus service to and from Carlisle. Although I have a car, I've used the service a few times and will continue to do so even though I feel the cost is quite high.

The journeys themselves have seemed quite "rough and tumble" compared to bus travel in Bolton. This I appreciate is probably due to the smaller buses used here, and also the atrocious condition of some of the roads. (I think of the ride into Carlisle quite fondly though...similar to "rickety" bus travel abroad on holiday in places like Spain and Turkey!)

I've found the buses to be clean with friendly drivers in the main. The only real issue I have is that I feel the buses are often driven a little dangerously at too high a speed. It seems as though not enough time is allocated to the journeys and the drivers are constantly trying to make up time.

These are simply my observations as a passenger on your bus service, and I hope they're helpful. Carol Douglas.

Why is the Stagecoach bus service to Carlisle so expensive? Dalston having a train service at less than half the price of a bus ticket it no wonder this service does not run at no where near its full capacity. If there is 2 or more people it is often less expensive to get a taxi! Surely it would make more sense to reduce the amount of services to carlisle everyday instead of running them every hour. I also think that running services later a night would increase the amount of people using the bus service.

Why isn't there a bus at 8.30pm to town? Also could there not be a later service from the town centre?


3 31 March 2005 Dalston Bus Consultation
We have a weekly service operated by Caldew Coaches exch Wednesday. I just wanted to say how reliable this has been, and with the added advantage of extremely careful and courteous drivers. Only once have I been unable to board (outside my house!) which was when the bus was fully laden during a half-term holiday. It's a pity more people from the outlying parts of the parish ie, Raughton Head, Gaitsgill, Raughton do not make use of it.


2 25 March 2005 Dalston Bus Consultation
I work in Carlisle and would like to use public transport. My car was off the road for a week last month and the public transport was extremely unreliable, particularly for the return journey at around 5pm, the 5.05pm bus did not turn up until 5.30pm. This experience has certainly put me off using the service as an alternative to driving in myself. The cost of the fares to and from Dalston are ridiculous. Why does stagecoach not allow megariders to be purchased for this route (currently only available to Cummersdale)? Even if the megarider was a little bit more expensive than the Carlisle ticket I am sure many more people would consider using the bus service.


1 16 March 2005 Dalston Bus Consultation
Although I do not use the buses myself I do notice that many seem to run to and from Carlisle with lots of empty seats. Are they convenient enough for Dalston people? Do they stop at the right places in the village?
