Pilkington Bus

Welcome Aboard!

We’re Pilkington Bus, your local and friendly bus service that will take you where you need to go – with a smile.

We’ve been serving the local area for over 50 years, since 1967 and we’re a family firm, headed up by Alan, Vicky and John Pilkington.

Our buses help the elderly keep their independence, help people access jobs they can’t walk to, and get children to school on time and safely. We’re here for your work commute, your shopping run, and your leisure time – all around the local area.

Catching the bus also helps the environment. Each local bus journey halves the greenhouse gas emissions of a single-person car journey and also removes congestion from the roads – making roads safer for everyone.

It’s also good for you! Our friendly drivers will make your journey stress-free, and with the same driver on your regular route, you’ll soon see familiar faces. If you’re the quiet type, sit back and relax! Our bus journeys are the perfect way to reach your destination nice and relaxed, with no parking hassles at the other end as a bonus.

So what are you waiting for? Check our timetables and hop on a bus – the Pilkington team will make you very welcome!


Don’t take our word for it! Here’s what people tell us:

As the bus was pulling out another car came down which the bus allowed to pass. The bus then passed me, as always giving me plenty of room. There's so much bad and discourteous driving around that it was so nice to see.

“We’ve been on lots of Pilkington buses and they’re all great, especially Ray on our route he can’t do enough to help, stops where you want him to stop, as long as it’s safe. Hats off to all the drivers!”

“I use the bus which goes to Merlin Court and the Oswaldtwistle bus. I find all your bus drivers helpful and always polite, and always let people sit down before moving. Thank you all for being there and helpful.”
