A new shuttle bus service is being planned to operate in Laxey during the summer months.

The move is designed to improve access for visitors wishing to see the village’s range of attractions.

If approved, minibuses will loop around the village, starting at Mines Road, calling at the Salmon Centre, Laxey Wheel access road and Minorca Hill on the way to the promenade, and return to Mines Road via Glen Road and Laxey Woollen Mills.

The service will be trialled following TT fortnight, and Bus Vannin has applied to the Road Transport Licensing Committee to operate the new Service 15 daily from June 9 to August 31.

It is proposed it will operate half hourly every day starting at 10.20am.

The last departure will be 2.20pm on school days, 3.20pm on non-school days and 3.50pm at weekends.

Standard bus fares will apply on the shuttle buses with Explorer and Saver tickets also accepted.

The new Service 15 is one of a number of applications Bus Vannin has made to the RTLC.

Full details of route changes will be announced prior to implementation when approved by the RTLC.

Schedules of all services will be included in a new bus timetable due to be published in May.
