Greater Manchester Service Changes
Greater Manchester Service Changes
As many will already know, there are a significant number of services that have ended or changed due to Jim Stones and MCT closures and withdrawal of services around Wigan by Diamond Bus. I have seen some information about this in various threads on this forum. However, given the extent of the changes, I would be grateful if anyone could provide a comprehensive list of new operators for existing, and amended, services from April. Thanks in anticipation.

A good chunk of the changes are on GMCA Transport Committee documents.

Below are the links to the 'forthcoming changes to the bus network' documents from the past few meetings. Note some of the changes have already taken place, you will need to check the implementation date for each of the entries.

Greater Manchester service changes
61 pages of changes, most of which involve re-routing services, withdrawing early/late journeys or reducing the frequency. (It also confirms the previous 391/392 contract they discussed was one awarded to D&G Bus which included an hourly Saturday frequency.)

One perhaps surprising change is:
312 Stockport to Handforth Dean WITHDRAWN
378/379 Stockport to Grove Lane EXTENDED TO HANDFORTH DEAN
42B Manchester –Didsbury – Cheadle– Bramhall – Woodford COMMERCIAL SERVICE FREQUENCY REDUCED TO HOURLY
42C Manchester–Didsbury – Cheadle- Handforth Dean- Handforth NEW SUBSIDED SERVICE MON-SAT HOURLY OPERATED BY STAGECOACH

The final page confirms Manchester Metroshuttle services will return to normal next week, as well as some contracted Transdev services.

Quite a number of changes both by Stagecoach and to Tenders, Looking like a good drop in PVR there
