Using Lancashire's transport information centres consultation

New Search

Purpose Like many councils across the country, Lancashire County Council continues to face an unprecedented financial challenge due to continued funding cuts by Government, rising costs and rising demand for the services we provide.

We are committed to providing the best services we can to the people of Lancashire, particularly to the most vulnerable in our communities. However the council's financial position remains extremely challenging, with a forecasted funding gap of 144m in 2021/22. Because of this, we still need to make some difficult decisions in order to make further savings.

On 7 December 2017 the county council's Cabinet agreed to consult on proposals to close the council's transport information centres at Preston Bus Station, Nelson Interchange, Clitheroe Interchange and Carnforth Railway Station.

Train operating companies and bus operators use a number of ways to make it easier for their passengers to get information about their services and to buy travel tickets both at local stations and online.

We know that many people value the services provided by these information centres and we would like to hear your views on the proposed closures. This consultation will help us to better understand the effect on the people who use these centres.
