The Witch Way
The Witch Way X43 is a high quality, frequent express service between Pennine Lancashire and Manchester. The route runs from Nelson via Burnley, Rawtenstall and Prestwich.
New buses introduced in October 2013 offer a comfortable and relaxing journey. Free wi-fi means you can work or connect with friends even more easily on your 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.
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.
You can download the Witch Way app for iPhones and Android devices. As our buses are tracked in real time, the free app provides up-to-the-minute information about the X43 service including when the next bus is due, details of tickets and a fare guide.
