The Witch Way

The Witch Way X43 is a high quality, frequent express service between Pennine Lancashire and Manchester - and there's a new witch in town!

Running from Nelson via Burnley, Rawtenstall and Prestwich, the service re-launches in a updated and still distinctive livery on 31st October 2013.

The new buses still offer a comfortable and relaxing journey. The double deck vehicles have individual, high backed, aircraft style leather seats on both decks. There are just 68 seats, with the best leg room you will find. Tinted windows absorb glare so you can enjoy the view, read or use electronic equipment comfortably. New free wi-fi means you can work or connect with friends even more easily on your journey.

Low entrances kneel to kerb height allowing easy access for buggies and wheelchairs. For your security there are CCTV cameras throughout, recording high definition colour images and sound, as well as improved interior lighting.

The frequent service is great for commuting, students or leisure visitors. Buses run Monday to Friday up to every 10 minutes at peak times and every 15 minutes daytimes, and up to every 15 minutes on Saturdays. Sunday services runs up to every 30 minutes.
