We’re changing our times for the summer holidays from Sunday 24 July 2016

At Stagecoach we’re committed to providing you with the most reliable service possible.

During the rush hours we have to allow extra time for our bus journeys to take into account the congestion we suffer in Greater Manchester. However, during the summer whilst the roads are quieter and schools are closed we can speed up many of our journeys. This means if you travel during the Monday to Friday rush hours your journey time may have changed and you need to double-check your bus time.

In the mornings, buses will generally leave their starting point slightly later and will arrive at their final destination at the usual time, or on some routes slightly earlier. In the afternoon, buses will generally leave their starting point at the same time but arrive at their final destination a little earlier. If you board your bus in the middle of the route, you may need to arrive at your stop to leave a little earlier than you currently do.

From Monday 5 September schools begin to re-open and the roads start to get busier, we will have to revise our services again. We will be adding extra time and resources to our services. This will ensure our timetables are robust enough to cater with ever increasing and unpredictable traffic congestion.

Summer timetables will be introduced on the following services:

Manchester: 7, 15, 23, 23A, 32, 34, 38, 42, 42A, 43, 50, 76, 84, 85, 86, 101, 104, 105, 108, 109, 111, 168, 169, 171, 179, 191, 192, 197, 201, 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 219, 221, 231, 253, 255, 313, 314, 327, 330, 347, 358, 368, 369, 370, 372, 374, 375, 378, 383, 384, X5, X34, X41 & X57
