Why not use Public transport?

Bus travel can provide a convenient and cost-effective alternative to driving by car. There are plenty of bus services running within walking distance of your new home at the Ridings.

Your nearest stops are on Durdar Road and are served by bus number 400, which runs approximately every 2 hours Monday to Saturday as well as 3 services on a Sunday. The 400 bus service provides journeys to destinations such as Blackwell, Carlisle, Wigton and Silloth.

Additionally, bus number 67 runs more frequently from bus stops on Scalegate Road and provides journeys to Upperby, Belle Vue and Carlisle City Centre. The service runs every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday as well as every 30 minutes on a Sunday.
