New bus service launched between Wilmslow and Handforth Dean
6 March 2023
A new bus service connecting Wilmslow and Handforth with the Handforth Dean retail park, launched last week.
The service, which will run from Mondays to Saturdays, is being developer funded as a result of the building of the Next store at the retail park. The new service will be operated by D&G Bus initially for a 12-month period and will hopefully contribute to the recovery of the local retail sector.
Councillor Craig Browne, chair of Cheshire East Council’s highways and transport committee, said: “I am very pleased that this new service is being launched, providing an important link for our communities.
“And while the government £2 bus fare scheme is still in operation, there is an added incentive to get out and use the service.”
Departing from Wilmslow railway station on the hour with returns from Handforth Dean at 35 minutes past the hour, the bus will also call at Wilmslow Bank Square and The Paddock in Handforth.
The new service will operate hourly from 9am to 6pm. Please see the timetable for exact details.
