I see with the X57 Timetable change to Manchester Airport the service is non longer Limited stop along A57 out of Manchester. as on the Traveline National Dataset they list every bus stop along Hyde road.

But they run a local service route in North west and Wales. High Peak is also listed as North West.

True, although First West Yorkshire run a sevice into Rochdalea in the NW, however that is a WY company, hence why it is in the other forum.

I feel they made a error cancelling the X56 they should of carried on with a service every hour from Glossop to Manchester to university to MRI with it being a standard service route it would bulid with university custom from places like Gorton but I would of had it calling at Hyde bus station also. Working with Manchester university and mri they could of made it work.

New X57 timetable is online thanks to Travel South Yorkshire. Generally 5 minutes extra added onto the journey time plus of course the viewing park.

While the new X1 timetable doesn't appear to be public that does appear to confirm the standard pattern for X1 from the Viewing Park. The only X57s shown as not serving the Viewing Park are outside the hours of opening, so it's not possible to say whether those will extend as X1s or not.

That TT gives a good indication of what's happening with the X1. They've always said six return journeys to/from Ashbourne and that is what there is, so pretty clear those will form the through journeys. The exception being the 1940 arrival at the VP, which doesn't logically form anything else, so must run dead back to depot.
As for the route south of MIA, if the assumption is correct re the registration, it would be totally bizarre to by -pass/not stop in Wilmslow and throw away any potential patronage. Hardly commercially sensible.

I've not seen anything official from Hulleys on the X1, only what's mentioned in TfGM and Derbyshire CC updates.

That'll mean the X1 is a bit like the old 200 service in that it's OK if you have a daytime shift working at the airport or have a flight at a sociable hour but it won't serve the airport at some of the airport's busier hours. The airport is normally very busy between 6am and 8am.

If someone based in an office in Baslow was tasked with drawing a route map then perhaps they thought it's relevant to include Alderley Edge as one of the main points on the map, as doing so confirms it's not routed via Prestbury. However, Wilmslow is close to both Alderley Edge and the Viewing Park so do all three need to be marked on a map for a long route?

Looking at Google Maps it comes up with a 12.3 mile route if you select Macclesfield to the viewing park and you choose the route via Alderley Edge. That directs you down Beddels Lane and Hawthorne St in Wilmslow, so avoids the town centre but goes via the health centre Re-routing via Sainsbury's increases the length by just 0.2 miles and it avoids sending a bus down a residential road with lots of parked cars. It would seem common sense.

If the X57 Sunday services to the viewing park extend as X1 as well then it would make even more sense for those to serve Wilmslow, given there is no Wilmslow to Macclesfield bus on Sundays.

I believe the x1 is mon-sat only.
