6 Rochdale to Kirkholt

We’ll be running evening buses after 7pm Monday to Saturday and 6pm on Sunday under contract to Transport for Greater Manchester. First Manchester will continue to run daytime journeys. Our GM Saver tickets will be valid on the evening journeys, and also on our daytime R7 to Kirkholt via Turf Hill. System One tickets will be the best value if you want to use both First and Rosso buses.
