On Saturday we reported about a forthcoming change to service 370 (Stockport - Altrincham) that would see the service rerouted to Sale. It appears now that the change, due to be introduced at the end of the month, may not happen at all.
As some of our readers have noticed, Stagecoach Manchester's service changes site now states: "This service will continue to run along its existing route to a new timetable. Further details will be published when received from GMPTE."
The change in route to the 370 was intended to improve links with Sale as part of a GMPTE programme to improve orbital bus services in the region. So, why has GMPTE called off the change? It would certainly remove a direct link to Altrincham from Heaton Mersey and Didsbury and would mean a poorer link from Northenden.
We've asked GMPTE for an explanation and we'll let you know as soon as we get it.
