Further service improvements are set to be introduced to Bee Network bus services in Bolton, Wigan and parts of Bury and Salford later this month.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), in collaboration with Go North West will roll out 20 additional buses in April to further help improve punctuality and reliability on services, as well as providing extra capacity.

To date, five buses have been added to the V1/V2,163 and 472/474 services since 7 April and from 28 April a further 15 will be added to the 8, 10, 20/21/22, 501, 524, 575/576, 601-606, 607, 608/35, and 609 services from 28 April.

Early indications are that the first five buses have had a positive effect on punctuality and reliability.

Passengers are encouraged to check any changes to their normal service by visiting a Travelshop or checking the Bee Network app or website. Information will also be updated on bus stops.

 Martin Shier, Head of Bus Network Design & Operations at TfGM, said: “Building the Bee Network is about delivering benefits to bus passengers across Greater Manchester. Key to that is improving the frequency and reliability of bus services, and the introduction of 20 additional buses this month clearly demonstrates our commitment to improving public transport in the region.”
