Roadworks on Broughton Road affecting the Witchway

4th - 23rd Nov

Between 4 and 23 November, there'll be roadworks taking place on Broughton Road near Skipton. During this time, the Witchway won't be able to stop at Broughton Close, Ribble Garage, Clifford Court/Post Office, the rail station or Belle Vue Mills. If you normally catch your bus here, we'll be stopping instead at Park Avenue, Raikeswood, Woodlands Drive, Craven College and Keelham Farm Shop. We're really sorry for any inconvenience.

Crane operations in Manchester city centre

9th Nov onwards

There's a large crane being built in Manchester city centre close to the Cathedral, which will affect our buses on the Witchway and Red Express. From 9 November, the Witchway and Red Express won't be able to stop at the Cathedral. They'll be running along Blackfriars and Trinity Way instead - if you normally catch your bus or get off here, head to our stops on Deansgate, where you'll be able to catch your bus instead. We're really sorry for any inconvenience.
