Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. 

In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity. 

The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. Stay up to date on our Coronavirus page.

Stockport Monday 17 July

18 Jul 2017

On the afternoon of Monday 17th July we experienced exceptionally severe delays across our network in the Stockport area.

We are sorry for the disruption you experienced in making your journeys and please be assured our staff were doing everything they could to get you to your destination.

A number of planned and emergency road works closed several key roads in the Stockport area leading to significantly increased volumes of traffic on several key roads.

To compound this, a multi vehicle accident on the M60 lead to many other road users avoiding the motorway and trying to use already very congested roads through Stockport.

To mitigate against the delays we used additional drivers and vehicles where we could but with traffic in and around Stockport town centre stationary and nowhere to go many of our buses and drivers were stuck and could not move for long periods.

We hate being late as much as you do and we do hope you understand that this was exceptional circumstances caused by events out of our control and largely unforeseen.
