Dear Passengers

583 – Leigh to Hag Fold Sunday Service

With effect from Sunday 11th December Transport for Greater Manchester have made minor route and timetable changes to Jim Stones Sunday and Blue Diamond Monday to Saturday evening services.

In Atherton the bus stops for Hag Fold will be the two in Mealhouse Lane and the bus stop/terminus in Flapper Fold Lane will no longer be served on the 583 service.

The service has also been re-routed to operate via Water Street, Formby Avenue, Car Bank Street, Somerset Road and Warwick Road and then the normal route to Spa Road with a minor timetable change.

Please ask the driver for a new timetable.
