Confirmation on the Hulleys Facebook page that the X57 will be withdrawn after the last service on 8 January 2022

Quote:Hello all. After what will be 441 days, the Snake X57 will be withdrawn after operation on Saturday 8 January 2022. This was a very difficult and even emotional decision to take, but for a myriad of reasons, ultimately the passenger numbers weren’t quite there. We feel that, despite a number of obstacles, we have given the service every opportunity to develop and succeed but, unfortunately, good will and kind words don’t pay the bills.
I would like to place on record my thanks to each and every customer for giving us and the X57 a chance to serve you. I would also like to thank our amazing team of Drivers who’ve battled their way through temporary traffic lights, snow, ice, road closures that were announced, road closures that weren’t announced along with some outrageous diversions, diversions on diversions, unannounced road closures on diversions on diversions and the infamous Mottram Moor bottleneck. Our Engineers for their skill, dedication and response, often dozens of miles away from base, whatever the time, whatever the day. To our Marketing team Alan, Jake, Jonny and Nathan for getting the stops up and the timetables out, spreading the word with some of the best creative thinking in the business. To Derbyshire County Council’s public transport team especially to Anthony, Janet and Phil, also to Alex for getting the bus stops out on the Snake Pass. To our Operator friends for their kind words of support, proving beyond all doubt that our industry is at its best when we support innovation, our people and most importantly each other. Thank you everyone. We hope you enjoyed the journey.

RE: Hulleys of Baslow
I tried riding route X57 today. I arrived at Chorlton Street by about 11.10 for the 11.30 journey. By 12.30 I gave up as it never turned up. I heard there had been delays at Snake Pass.

Just as well I was in Manchester as I was able to make other use of my afternoon.

I could try again another day but don't really feel like it. After all, it was today that was my east Manchester trip.
