First Buses strike action - Mon 28th Sep

Passengers in the west and north of Greater Manchester are being warned of further disruptions to First Bus services on Monday, due to ongoing industrial action.

The union for First Bus drivers is continuing with strike action planned for Monday 28 September, which will affect services operating from depots in Bolton, Bury and Wigan.

Click here for a full list of disrupted services

First Bus will be operating half hourly services, between 7.30am and 6.30pm, on the 37 (between Bolton and Swinton Civic only), 471 (between Bolton and Bury only), 507, 524 and 540 (between Bolton and Westhoughton, Washacre only), and these services will be free to use.
GMPTE is advising passengers to explore alternative travel options on the day and to expect demand on the services listed above and on services provided by other operators, as well as on trains and trams, to be significantly greater.

Staff will be on hand across the network to advise passengers, notices will be placed on affected bus stops and stations.

Dedicated school services will not be affected. Details of which First services will and will not run, together with – where appropriate – services that will be provided by alternative operators, will be available from http://www.gmpte.com/.Information about public transport services in Greater Manchester is also available by calling Traveline on 0871 200 22 33 (Calls cost 10p a minute. Mobile and landline networks may charge more. Lines are open from 7am to 8pm, Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 8pm at weekends.)
