Service changes from Sunday 31st October 2021

8 months ago Thu 14th Oct 2021


We will be introducing a revised timetable to improve service reliability. Buses will generally operate around every 90 minutes. Customers between Simister and Prestwich can also use new service 96A.


This new service will operate along the same route as 96 between Simister and Prestwich, Fairfax Road. It will then serve Prestwich Tesco, offering new shopping opportunities to customers. The service will operate in the middle of the day on weekdays, with additional journeys in the early morning and late afternoon on Saturdays and Sundays.

Free Bus 2

There are changes to the route of the Free Bus 2 in the Deansgate area.

Between the junctions of John Dalton Street and Peter Street, this service will now operate directly along Deansgate and pick up and drop off at stop WH at John Rylands Library.

The service will no longer call at stops on Gartside Street at the courts or Quay Street at the Opera House.
