A look at Greater Manchester Transport’s 1980 changes and comparison with present services
The 20 July 1980 was a seminal date in the history of Mossley’s bus routes. Firstly it led to the extension of the 343 route to Oldham. Secondly, it led to the rise in importance of the 350 service. Today, both the 343 and the 350 link Mossley with Oldham; the latter via Uppermill. A lot of the 1980 changes set the framework for today’s services in and around the locality from Quick Edge to Micklehurst.
