Mainline

Mainline offers high-frequency services along the main route between Colne and Padiham, with links to other towns in Pennine Lancashire and North Yorkshire.

Our smart, high quality service runs up to every 7-8 minutes between Colne and Padiham. The route extends east and west to serve Accrington, Clitheroe, Barnoldswick, Skipton and Keighley.

Buses show a range of numbers between 21 and 29, the number being determined by the final destination of the bus.

All Mainline buses are easy-access types with a step-free entrance. There are dedicated places for buggies and wheelchair users. All passengers can enjoy a comfortable journey with bright modern interiors and part leather seats new in 2009, when over half of the vehicles in the fleet were also replaced.

Main Lion mascot is a roaring success...

He's big, he's furry and he's become the new face of Mainline. Our superhero Main Lion mascot is already proving a huge success with young customers as he helps to promote Mainline services among local people.

Keep a look out for Main Lion as he continues to support promotional events in the months to come!
