  List of operators who've signed up to the £2 fare cap
Posted by: knutstransport - 19/12/2022 12:26 - Replies (9)

https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/m...e-28762283

It's for 3 months from 1 Jan. In the case of some of them signing up it's only relevant in their non-PTE sections of route due to existing PTE area schemes in GM and Merseyside.

At the moment it looks like the Cheshire East routes that will be excluded are:
39 Crewe-Nantwich (Mikro)
90/91/92 Congleton Locals (Hollinshead)
191 Lymm Shopper (Direct Taxis)
391/392 Macclesfield-Stockport (Little Gem)

Saying that Little Gem do m-tickets that include a £1.50 single journey fare and a £3.70 day ticket that doesn't mention any exclusions. It might also be the case that the singles on the other routes don't exceed £2.

  Cheshire West & East Tenders
Posted by: iMarkeh - 13/12/2022 20:43 - Replies (5)

I thought it best to introduce this as a new topic seeing as normally these tender updates end up in operator specific threads. We have a page for Manchester tenders and it seems to work well.


News for tenders are as follows
Cheshire West has put the 15/X30 Evening tender out. Same timetable as current. Contract due to start April 2023
Cheshire West has put the 102/103 Ellesmere Port Sunday Service tender out. Same timetable as current. Contract due to start April 2023

Cheshire East has put out a tender for a 312 Handforth and Wilmslow Circular. Mon-Sat, PVR 1. Apparently using S106 developer funding. Tender due to start Feb 2023 for 1 year, possible 1 year extension (so upto 2 years in all). Bus must be Euro 6 to comply with Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone.
Service to run from what seems to be the housing development adjacent to Handforth Dean (but it suggests it doesn't serve Handforth Dean Tesco).

  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.

In view of the current Arriva bus strike is any other bus company taking over the services from Birkdale and Southport Station to the showground?

  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: https://www.flickr.com/photos/quicksilve...1429950011

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