Manchester to Ashton-under-Lyne, or Oldham to Hyde for just £2.00
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.
