Passengers Get All Shook Up by Elvis on New 56 and 57 Bus Launch

11 Oct 2016

Stagecoach Manchester passengers were treated to a concert from the King himself when an Elvis impersonator provided some rock ‘n’ roll entertainment for passengers on the newly enhanced 56 and 57 services.

  
To celebrate the launch of the enhanced services, Elvis rolled back the years belting out hits such as Jailhouse Rock and Heartbreak Hotel, in homage to the king’s number one hit in ‘56 and the enhanced 56 service.

The 56 and 57 services will transport passengers from Harpurhey, Higher Blackley, North Manchester General Hospital and Lower Crumpsall to the city centre.

 
The improvements mean the 56, 57 and existing 156 services will now run up to every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday daytime providing affordable, comfortable and connected transport. 

Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Christopher Bowles, said: “We’ve listened to customer feedback and have improved our 56 and 57 services, combined with the 156 and 56A/57A on Sundays, to give the people of North Manchester regular and affordable transport to Manchester city centre.
