Bluebird bus services are now part of Stagecoach Manchester

Stagecoach would like to take this opportunity to welcome our new customers in North Manchester and other areas previously served by Bluebird services.

There will be some changes to the buses, passenger information and ticket range, as we work behind the scenes to make Bluebird part of Stagecoach Manchester operation.

What does this mean?


We will be refurbishing and repainting Bluebird buses in Stagecoach colours and introducing Stagecoach buses whilst this work is done. This means that for a little while when your bus arrives it may be in the former Bluebird or the Stagecoach livery.

Routes and timetables

There will be no change in the immediate future to the routes and timetables operated. To see a list of routes - please click here
