Bus services reduced or suspended during coronavirus lockdown


Bus services in Alderley Edge, Wilmslow, Handforth and the surrounding area have been withdrawn or reduced as a result of the coronavirus.

Operator D&G Bus is currently operating a revised bus timetable due to the reduction in passenger numbers during the current lockdown.

A spokesperson for D&G Bus said "This is a difficult time for all, and the world changed with the announcement of a national lockdown. Passenger numbers have fallen to 15% or less of normal numbers. With the help of Local Authority partners, and our staff who are being magnificent, we continue to provide a reduced service on most routes.

"We are following government advice at all times to ensure the safety of our staff and passengers. Currently we are in no danger of closing down and ceasing operations."

As a result the 130 service between Macclesfield, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow and Handforth has been temporarily suspended.

Whilst Service 88 is currently operating to a reduced timetable with five buses a day running between Altrincham, Wilmslow, Mobberley, Knutsford and Macclesfield. Whilst the reverse route from Macclesfield to Altrincham is running with either five or six buses a day Monday to Saturday.
