With a maximum fare of £2.00 on Summer Sundays, on Stagecoach’s Manchester routes, the company’s special offer would give the trains a run for their money.

Fancy a nice Summer Sunday on the bus? If you live in South Manchester, parts of Tameside, Stockport, and Wigan, Stagecoach Manchester have a splendid offer for you.

On Summer Sundays, the maximum single fare on Stagecoach Manchester buses will be £2.00. Yes, £2.00. From 0400 to midnight. This is in addition to their £2.00 maximum single fare which is available on evening journeys seven days a week.

As well as long distance journeys for half the normal single fare, you can save on the usual single fares along short to medium trips. A trip from Ashton-under-Lyne to Manchester will be half price. A journey from Ashton-under-Lyne to Hollingworth could be more than a pound less than normal.

In Tameside, Stagecoach’s Summer Sunday fare is valid on most Manchester-bound bus routes (the 217 is operated by MCT Travel) from Ashton and Hyde. It also covers the 330 service to Manchester Airport, the 236 and 237 routes to Glossop and the 340 bus from Oldham to Hyde. A couple of quid from Dukinfield to Oldham? You cannot complain about that, especially on a Sunday.

In Oldham, this not only covers the 340 service to Stalybridge and Hyde. You could plump for a 74 to ‘Town’ instead of a First bus or a tram.

Stagecoach Manchester’s offer is valid until the 26 August (midnight), the last Sunday before Bank Holiday Monday and Autumn 2018’s service changes.

S.V., 31 July 2018.

    I like the caption about giving trains “a run for their money”. What trains? Northern Rail drivers are on a proxy Strike every Sunday anyway. And that admission has come from a NR employee, who says drivers are exploiting the omission of Sundays as a cumplosory rostered day to work.
    More generally, its obviously a good initiative overall, but I suspect only a deterioration in the weather has stopped overloading and late running on some services between 0930 & 1030
