RE: Lancashire County Council Service Changes
Stagecoach restoring normal timetables on most of their Preston routes from the end of August, although the 125 will remain on a reduced frequency for a few more weeks due to "driver availability issues".

Meanwhile, the 59 will have an increased Monday-Saturday daytime frequency of every 20 minutes and Monday-Saturday evening journeys introduced, while most journeys are extended from Blackburn to Royal Blackburn Hospital.
