I'll be walking up to Mumps tomorrow since it only takes me 5 minutes, just to see what's going on. I live in Abbeyhills, at the top next to Alexandra Park. It's crap but it's not too bad for getting to town dead easy with Smile

Service runs every 30 mins between 9.40am and 4pm (not sure how that works though). No details on the operator either. Service funded by Oldham Council and TfGM.

Also, not sure how the service can run via King Street given it was closed off due to Metrolink works.

You totally certain 37409 is in old livery still?
News on the Oldham Metroshuttle 400. First are not operating it. The service is being operated by Manchester Community Transport. Mercedes minibus being used too, so not the biggest. Leaflet available from Oldham TfGM Travelshop. I imagine online version available soon.

Of course I'm not but I havent seen it in the new livery myself or seen it reported by anyone else! Don't forget that at least another 4 would have been done last week, 3 at BN and 1 at WN (37425 was done at OM) so the list are never 100% accurate.
From this week 6 will be done according to Lea from OM:
3 at BN
2 at OM
1 at WN
so it won't be long before they are all done. He said that the Scania Benids at BY are going away to be sprayed at 2 per week.

Ok thank you,

I asked specifically about 37409 because its one of my favourite B9s, and its a while since, I have seen it. Let me know when you spot it, I hope its not wondered away from Bolton.

So Its going to start then, Bury's fleet of 18 bendis, to be repainted excellent, they will need to get going with it though, in readiness for the re launch of the 135. I have also been watching the posts of our mutual friend from OM but must have missed that one. Ypu can bet even when the bendis are re painted, and branded. They will still show up on the 471s. Brings me to my latest curious thing for knowing which Oldham B9s went to the olympics. Cant seem to find any posts on the forum. :-)
Boy on a bike has been hit by a car on Oldham Road in Failsworth near Tesco, which has meant the 82/83, 180/184s and X84 are being diverted along Mersey Rd North, Westminister Rd and Ashton Rd East/West (joining 76 route) in both directions. Just gone through the area now.

Surprised it's being run by MCC as apposed to one of the 'local' operators. I would imagine it's the councils way of trying to inject some life back in to the town centre, although using one of them
horrid merc bread vans carn't look to good.

Incidentally, is Oldham council funding any sort of Dovestones park and ride service this year? I know First did it last year and checkmate the year before but heard nothing this year.
