September 2017 Bus Service Changes in Cheshire East

Here is the latest news of bus service changes from the Cheshire East website. The forthcoming timetable for service 130 adds later departures between Wilmslow and Macclesfield on Monday Friday evenings and leaves me wondering if the route is now shared between their Wythenshawe and Macclesfield depots. If so, let’s hope that these attract decent and growing usage since the service finishes up to early at the moment and there is a paucity of evening peak time journeys that looks set to be addressed.
