Stagecoach in Cumbriaedit

Stagecoach in Cumbria is a trading name of Stagecoach North West Ltd and operates services around the Cumbria area formerly known as Stagecoach Cumberland, Stagecoach Ribble and Barrow Borough Transport

Cumberland was one of the first National Bus Company subsidiaries to be privatised: this was almost immediately after gaining the Penrith and Carlisle depots from Ribble The company was bought from the NBC by Stagecoach, who split it into two territories: CMS Carlislebus for services within Carlisle itself and CMS Cumberland for the rest of the services; eventually both territories merged with Ribble's south Cumbria services to become Stagecoach Cumberland

In 2005 Stagecoach started operating new double-decker buses that were the property of Cumbria County Council on its flagship service X35 route between Barrow-in-Furness, Ulverston, Grange-over-Sands and Kendal At the time the route was subsidised by Cumbria County Council and lower fares applied In July 2012 the service became commercial and Stagecoach began to use its own buses At the same time the service was renumbered X6 and diverted away from the Westmorland General Hospital in Kendal Some daytime X6 buses now stop at the K Village shopping centre on the way into Kendal The return fare from Ulverston to Kendal is currently £690, as of September 2017

The 62, 62A and 62B service to Kingmoor Park is also subsidised by Cumbria County Council, as of 2006

In January 2008, the flagship 555/6 route from Keswick - Lancaster was upgraded to Dennis Trident/ALX400 operation A further upgrade took place in October 2011, this time to brand new Scania N230UD/Enviro400s which, along with the open top ALX400s on routes 78, 508 and 599, operate in a green version of the corporate livery

The company is frequently criticised for its high fares, as indeed was Ribble in its day In November 2012 a single fare from Kendal to Ambleside was £625 11 miles, 177 km and Bowness to Grasmere £585 54 miles, 87 km
