    Stagecoach has lost out heavily in recent Highland Council bus service contract tendering for the Isle of Skye and there are service cuts too. Ali’s Taxis may have become one of the beneficiaries of the upheaval but it does mean that the number of journeys between Broadford and Elgol have taken a hit along with others.

    It is only now that I am getting to share some bus fare information from my Yuletide trip to Mallorca. Here are a few example fares so you get an idea as what prices are like:

    Adult Single from Palma to Palma Airport: €5.00

    Adult Single from Palma to Port d’Andratx: €5.55

    Adult Single from Palma to Sóller via coastal route: €3.98

    Adult Single from Sóller to Palma via tunnel route: €2.65

    The coming Sunday seems to be a day when bus companies are introducing changes to their bus networks around Greater Manchester. Both First and Stagecoach are doing so with the latter shortening its service 378 to operate only within Greater Manchester and not into Cheshire East as at present. Otherwise, we are talking about tweaks rather than any upheavals.

    From next week, Stagecoach no longer will operate service 378 within Cheshire East; instead, it is sticking to serving Greater Manchester. That leaves a gap that D&G Buses are going to fill with Monday to Friday daytime hourly service between Wilmslow and Handforth Dean. There currently is a Saturday service so it will be interesting to see if that direct connection gets restored.
