The fare offers on some First routes have been extended again.

The £1 single fare offer on the 18, 41, 42 and 157 between Manchester city centre, MRI and Didsbury has been extended from 30 September until 10 January 2015, while the £10 weekly fare on the 36/37 route has also been extended from 30 September until 22 November 2014.

No surprise there really.
Have stagecoach extended thier £1 offer yet?? If not I'm presuming they will this coming week Smile


RE: First Manchester - Polo Mint - 12/10/2014 16:02

How is First performing on the 41/42 services? I am seeing some busy buses and some empty ones as well.

There does seem to be a fair few empty buses with a handful of passengers on others, where as Magic buses always seem to be full. I think the fact they are still offering the £1 fares suggests thier still trying to tempt passengers away from Stagecoach.


RE: First Manchester - Polo Mint - 12/10/2014 18:44

Why have First not been able to lure enough passengers by now?

They have cheap fares, brand new vehicles and a decent frequency.


RE: First Manchester - VolvoB10M - 12/10/2014 20:31

I presume people are still just catching Stagecoach because either, that they either don't want to change because they are used to them, or they have membership/season saver tickets.

There are quite a lot of empty First buses at the Sale end of the 41 particulary around tea time. Usually their destination shows - Sorry not in service! The timetable from Sale is a waste of time (Glad Stagecoach operate a decent service). Complain to First and what do you get - an acknowledgement and then nothing.

Stagecoach's £1 offer on the 142/143 continues along Wilmslow, as does the £1 offer between Swinton Civic Centre, Salford Shopping Centre and Manchester on the 32, 38, 50 and X34 plus the £10 Megarider ticket on the 38. All these promotions have been extended until 31 October, but probably will continue beyond that date.


RE: First Manchester - jimbo - 13/10/2014 04:17

As for Stagecoach moving into other boroughs; I have heard about 2 more routes;
Jumping more into 36/38 area
And extending 330 to Oldham via 409 route


RE: First Manchester - joe_alker - 13/10/2014 08:18

Quote:c. Stagecoach seem to be about to wipe one borough they operate in off their network.....and no, it isn't Wigan.

and which one might this be?
