Stagecoach Simplify Route Numbers in Wigan

24 Jan 2019

Stagecoach Manchester will be completing its renumbering of services in Wigan, Leigh and Bolton on 27 January as it looks to continue to make bus travel easier for its customers.

The buses being renumbered are as follows:

540 is changing to 7
593 is changing to 8
598 is changing to 8
658 is changing to 9
600 is changing to 10
601 is changing to 10A

Service 34 to Manchester and 113 to Preston will keep the same route numbers, while services 634 and 635, which Stagecoach operate on behalf of Transport for Greater Manchester, will also be unchanged.  

In addition to the renumbering of services, there will also be some timetable changes to a selection of services, largely to improve punctuality for customers. 

Service 34 and X34 will also operate a new route between Bryn and Manchester from 27 January with new links to Winton, Monton and Salford Royal Hospital.  All X34 journeys will be renumbered to 34.  

The full list of changes can be found on our website: 

A leaflet will also be distributed to households around the services affected.

Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Elisabeth Tasker, said: “It is essential that our services are designed with the people and communities who use them in mind. By simplifying the way we number our Wigan services, we’re able to make it easier for more people to travel by bus and take advantage of its value and practicality.”
