Boost for busy bus

6 March 2018
TfGM Bus Priority Package - Guided busway

We're providing more seats for Manchester-bound bus passengers on the A580 during the morning rush hour.

From 9 April, two new Vantage services will provide an extra 130 seats, following feedback from customers that services were becoming increasingly busy during the morning peak.

The new services, which will run at 6.55am from Tyldesley and at 8.19am from the A580 park and ride site, will both terminate at Princess Street.

To free up capacity, four of the other morning Vantage services will now also terminate at Princess Street rather than continue to Oxford Road. These are the 6.22am, 6.37am and 6.52am services from Atherton and the 7.10am from Leigh bus station.

Passengers on these services can continue their journey to Oxford Road by alighting at Princess Street and catch a following service.
Services will run on the normal timetable for the rest of the day.
