Route 461 not Hail & Ride
http://www.tfgm.com/upload/routemaps/461_Web_only_0111.pdf
and there are no bus stops on Peel Lane & Bank Top Street.

On the corner of Peel Lane and Bank Top Street is an Old Folks Home. Does Transport for Greater Manchester think it would be a good idea if those senior citizens could use the buses on route 461 for which they pay in their taxes?

    Hello

    I notice you have had no response to your request for a bus stop on Peel Lane or Bank Top Street. Has anything been provided or the 461 changed to Hail and Ride.

    Dear Peter

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    Nothing has been provided. The operator, Rossendale, registered the route as not Hail & Ride and cannot change that.

    Regards

    Hello Tom.

    Have you had anything from TFGM? I notice you said that Rossendale cannot run hail and ride. Is this because the service is contracted or another reason?

    Kind regards

    Hello Peter

    Thank you for your support.

    I have not heard anything from TfGM and there is still no bus stop near the old folks home, although the junction of Bank Top Street and Peel Lane is a fare stage and timing point.

    As I understand Rossendale Transport, when they registered that part of the route, TfGM 461, they said it would be formal bus stops, and Rossendale Transport is unable to change that registration.

    TfGM pays for all of route 461, which is a half hourly shopping hours service.

    With best wishes

    The transport authority, which is called Transport for Greater Manchester, sponsor some valuable services, but they don't do customer care.

    The transport authority, which is called Transport for Greater Manchester, use our taxes to pay for some valuable services, but they don't do customer care.

    Hello

    Is your latest post from yourself or copied from the media? I would appreciate a link if it is from the media or place where it was published. It appears that time is being taken and there are some moves that can be made to find out more information and possibly get the wheels moving on this.

    Thank you for your persistence. Fingers crossed together we can get this bus stop install over the line.

    Hello Peter Dixon

    Thank you for your message. The posts with my name are all my own work and nothing to do with the media in any way at all.

    Many thanks.

    The Transport Authority, which is called Transport for Greater Manchester, has not made any effort of any kind: nothing has been done, and they do not respond to any of my communications, at all, ever.

    We now have a bus stop, but the vast majority of buses on TfGM route 461 do not travel past it.

    Took a year for TfGM to resolve a minor problem.
