  Queens Funeral 19/9
Posted by: M60lad - 10/09/2022 20:43 - Replies (9)

Considering its now been announced that the Queens Funeral on 19/9 will be a Bank Holiday does this actually mean Buses in various places in Northwest will be running a normal Bank Holiday service or is this yet to be decided?

  £2 Greater Manchester fare cap
Posted by: knutstransport - 06/09/2022 12:44 - Replies (18)

What effect has the £2 fare cap had?

I know any GM-only fares that were over £2 have been reduced to £2. However, have many fares that were already £2 or less been affected? Or have any cross-border fares changed?

I notice Little Gem's single has gone down from £1.80 to £1.50 when purchased using the app. I don't know anything about their on board fares.

I also observe D&G's pricing on the 88 is now extremely inconsistent. £2 for Altrincham to Airport City, £4.20 for Hale Barns to Morley Green and £2.30 for Wilmslow to Wilmslow station.

  Roy McCarthy coaches (Macclesfield)
Posted by: knutstransport - 11/07/2022 20:20 - Replies (4)

On numerous occasions in recent weeks I've seen C307 UFP parked up outside a primary school. Presumably they have a contract to transport pupils to and from swimming lessons.

It's an actual 1980s Bedford coach, as pictured here:

I'm surprised an operator is using a vehicle that old to transport school children.
