Changes to times from Sunday 24 April

We're making some changes to our timetables from Sunday 24 April.

Some of these changes are based on your feedback, whilst other changes are to help with punctuality and reliability for you. There are also some changes to our 'contracted' routes, which we run on behalf of Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM). 

Here are the details.

17 Manchester - Rochdale

The temporary timetable that we introduced in December 2021 will become permanent, with some small adjustments to help with reliability.

18 MRI - Langley

From 24 April, the 18 will run every 30 mins on the section of route between MRI and Shudehill, Monday to Friday. 

CrossCity 41 Sale - Middleton

CrossCity 41 will now run every 20 mins between Sale and North Manchester General Hospital. Far fewer people are now using the 41 to travel between NMGH and Middleton, so from 24 April, buses will run every hour between NMGH and Middleton.

Orbits 52 Trafford Centre - Failsworth

There'll be some changes to times to help with reliability for you.

Orbits 53 Salford - Cheetham Hill

There'll be some changes to times to help with reliability for you.

67 Manchester - Cadishead

There'll be some changes to times to help with reliability for you, with buses on the 67 & 100 generally running up to every 7/8 mins between Manchester and Eccles. 

90 Simister - Sedgley Park

We'll be running the 90 on Monday to Saturday daytimes at the request of TfGM. The 90 replaces TfGM-contracted route 96, which will be withdrawn.

92 Manchester - Bury

We currently run the 92 in the evenings under contract to TfGM. This route will be withdrawn from 24 April, with evening trips partially replaced by buses on the 97.

93 Manchester - Carr Clough

From 24 April, all journeys on the 93 will run between Manchester and Carr Clough, but there will be improvements to the 95 which will replace buses to Prestwich and Bury. The 93 will run every 20 mins on Mondays to Saturdays, and there'll be changes to times through the evenings and Sundays, with evening trips now replaced by the 97.

95 Salford - Bury

The 95 will be doubled in frequency to run every 30 mins between Salford, Carr Clough and Bury. Buses will take a different route between Blackford Bridge and Bury, running instead along the same route as the 97 to help with consistency.

96 & 96A Manchester - Simister

The 96 and 96A will no longer run from 24 April. It will be replaced by the 90 between Simister and Prestwich, with connections for Manchester available at Prestwich.

97 Manchester - Bury

The 97 will run every 30 mins between Manchester and Bury on Monday to Saturday daytimes, with a new hourly service running during the evenings to replace buses on the 92 & 93.

98 Manchester - Bury

The 98 will run every 30 mins between Manchester and Bury Monday to Saturday, with extra 'short' trips running between Prestwich and Manchester through the daytime. 

100 Manchester - Warrington

There'll be some changes to times to help with reliability for you, with buses on the 67 & 100 generally running up to every 7/8 mins between Manchester and Eccles. 

Middleton's Minis 129 Middleton - Boarshaw

At the request of TfGM, the 129 will take a different route between Middleton and Boarshaw. We'll also be running the evening journeys on the 129 from 24 April, so your Go North West day and season tickets will be valid for more of the time!

135 Manchester - Bury

The temporary timetable that we introduced in December 2021 will become permanent, with some adjustments to help with reliability.

Middleton's Minis 415 Middleton - Oldham

We'll now be running the 415 on Monday to Saturday evenings, and there'll be some new, earlier trips on Saturday mornings.
