Stagecoach Manchester and Wigan

Under normal circumstances I would expect single fares to increase in April probably around the 10% mark, but there might be a lot of politicking between Perth, Manchester and Whitehall in the meantime.
Full fare changes are now online

Thanks. I got as far as "We have continued to make our single fares (easier and) cheaper" and collapsed in hysterics.

Hopefully it retains its original moquette it's part of the buses history Smile

Managed to pick up a leaflet off a Sharston bus this morning - no leaflets on either of he HE buses I travelled on, but at least one had the poster fitted.

Maybe its because of the inertia as regarding "Bus Reform" - not least through outside factors *Brexit; the Failways and "CleanAir", all of which can be blamed largely on Westminster/Whitehall - I'm still trying to second guess, Stagecoach's timing and motivation. I guess with Single fares "mostly" not involved, they have decided that the less contentious period fares for full time/pay commuters, can be increased "quietly" whilst everybody continues the annual Autumn/Winter debate over Rail Fare increases by (shock, horror) the inflation rate. It might make page 21 of the MEN one day next week, but I don't think BBC NW or Granada Reports are going to mention it.

The only other thing in the mix - and this would give a clue as to what is going on "behind closed doors" - is where is the 2019/20 GBF bid process up to regarding the 105 e-buses?

Its certainly going to be interesting for Hyde Road services when work does eventually start and I wonder whether we'll see any timetable changes to any of their services while this is on going.

I think they may just cut the routes into 2 parts and put more 7s to give people a gap fill for locals at peak.

Can you be more specific, bearing in mind no one (outside M'cr City Council) knows exactly what this work entails in terms of disruption, diversion and duration?

Also, how is the 7 (physically) different to the rest of not only buses, but all traffic?
