A sneak peak inside your new look Mainline


Get ready for Lancashire's biggest ever investment in new buses.

We're bringing 30 amazing buses worth a cool £4.4 million to the streets of Burnley and Pendle in July, all made in the north by Optare with pride. 

These are buses you'll want to be seen on, designed to our exacting specifications, based on feedback from you, through our recent 'Make My Mainline' research programme.

We're pleased to say we've managed to include your top 5 items requested on every bus - and more besides. Free WiFi, USB and wireless charging, mini-tables, more legroom, next stop info, a bigger bin and more are just some of the features you'll find inside - take a look at some of the highlights below.

If you just can't wait to see your new buses, pop over and meet your Mainline team in Nelson on Friday 21 July, and in Burnley on Saturday 22 July for the chance to get up close and personal - and grab your selfie in the drivers' seat!

And you won't want to miss our official launch party - The Big Burnley Bus Bash, taking place at our depot on Queensgate on Sunday 23 July. There'll be fun for all the family, with live music, food and drink, craft stalls, trips through the bus wash, vintage and modern vehicles, and much more. 

Your new fleet hits the streets of Burnley and Pendle towards the end of July. Don't forget, Mainline runs up to every 7 mins between Padiham, Burnley, Nelson and Colne - and to many other places nearby - early til late, 7 days a week.
