Happy buses

Happy Buses to Keswick & Coniston

We offer an optional Bus Service called the Happy Bus, the cost for this in 2022  is £7.50 . Once booked these Happy Bus seats are non refundable/not transferrable so make sure you need a seat before booking. 

Once your team has been APPROVED you can pay for  a Happy Bus seat  to the start of the K2B or C2B Walk from your dashboard (www.keswick2barrow.co.uk/dashboard) . You can either pay for your Happy Bus seat when you pay your non refundable/not transferrable proceesing fee or you can return and do it later, again, via your dashboard.

From your dashboard you can review and  update /pay for your Happy Bus  pick-up point at any time up to 3 weeks before walkday, affter this the Happy Bus pick-up point will be locked out and Happy Bus booking service will be closed (This allows us time to plan and organise the bus time table)

Buses start from various points, picking up at locations along the route as listed below - As these Timings are very APPROXIMATE make sure you are early as the Bus won't wait.

Please be aware that all buses do not stop at each location (most only pickup at 2 / 3 locations). You must get on the bus at the location specified on your e-Bus Ticket.

Please Note:- We do NOT provide a return, post walk,  Happy Bus Service so please plan on how you will get back to where you are staying
