Changes to Bus Timetables

We can confirm that the following changes to bus stops in Congleton will operate on ToB day, when buses will not be able to access their usual Fairground location:

  • Arriva 38 service will use the stops in Mill Street
  • Arriva 87 service will operate to and from Mountbatten Way/Brook Street roundabout
  • D & G services 42, 77 and 315 will operate to and from Mill Street
  • D & G 94 to Newcastle will run to and from Congleton Rail Station
  • D & G Beartown Buses will operate a less frequent service approximately hourly from Bromley and Buglawton to Mountbatten Way/Brook Street and also from Mossley and Congleton Rail Station.

There are likely to be major delays and cancellations throughout the day as the tour operates its rolling road closures. Buses and drivers will have to stand down at the nearest safe point as the roads are closed. Once roads are clear services can resume as soon as vehicles are back in the right place.

We are working closely with the bus operators and ToB team on these details and we will continue to update the published details on the CEC website at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/public_transport/bus/bus_service_timetables.aspx
