Changes on Red Express from Sunday 1 September


There'll be some changes to times on Red Express from Sunday 1 September.

Over the years, we've tried lots of things to make Red Express work as best we can for everybody.

Last year, we created a much-needed new link between Ramsbottom and Manchester, and we know that the good folk of Ramsbottom in particular have begun to rely on Red Express since then.

In fact, Red Express has been performing better than it ever has before since we made the change, but quite simply, we are not carrying enough people outside of the morning and evening rush hours to keep Red Express going in its current form. 

With this in mind, from Sunday 1 September, Red Express will become hourly during the daytime, Monday to Saturday. There'll still be a bus roughly every half an hour during the morning and evening rush hours.

We'll be maintaining our current levels of service during the busy morning and afternoon peaks, with a bus roughly every 30 mins.

Hopefully, this will ensure that Red Express has a solid foundation from which to build for the future.

Take a look at the new timetable here.
