Bus service timetables and journey planning

Planning your journey

If you know your bus route number use the bus timetable list to go to the buses page for details of times and fares or use the bus and rail maps to help plan your journey on the new bus network.

You can also order Cheshire East bus timetables to your home address or pick one up from Cheshire East libraries.

If you are of eligible age or disabled you may qualify for a senior or disabled person's bus pass or senior and disabled person's railcard.

You may also be able to use one of the community and flexible transport services that operate in East Cheshire to complete your journey.

Door to door travel planning

You can also use the Traveline Journey Planner to find routes and times for your journey anywhere in Great Britain, or click on the icons at the top of the journey planning box to find live departures or look up a timetable for buses and trams that cover all the stops served.

You can also plan your journey with the help of the Traveline telephone service by calling 0871 200 22 33 (12p per minute from landlines and mobiles, plus your phone companies access charge).

The English Traveline call centre opening hours are 7am to 10pm most days. You can find full details on Travelines website.

Roadworks will affect D&G Bus service 8 from 29 October 2018 to 29 May 2019.

The service will be split into three separate routes to minimise disruption that may occur while Sydney Road railway bridge is rebuilt.

Northern Rail Route Improvements

There will be changes to some Northern Rail services in Cheshire East in November. You can find more information on Northern Rail's improvement works information page.

Older and Disabled Persons Bus and Rail Passes

If you are of eligible age or disabled you may qualify for a senior or disabled persons bus pass or senior and disabled persons railcard.

Concessionary Bus Pass Scheme – update regarding new system

We have been issuing new passes to passengers since 5 November and all passengers should receive their new passes soon. Most on-bus ticket machines (ETMs) will accept the new passes, but some operators will be updating the software on these machines over the next few weeks.

Bus operators have been informed of the changes and their drivers have been instructed to allow passengers to travel as long as they have a valid and legible pass while the software updates are processed.

The changes have been made to save money and speed up pass issue. Cheshire East Council now manages its own Concessionary Bus Pass Scheme. In order to change to this new system, it has been necessary to replace all current passes. Even after we have replaced all the passes, we will still make savings year on year.

The new passes can be identified by a black Cheshire East Council logo.

Christmas service changes 24 December to 2 January 2019

There will be changes to most bus services over the Christmas and New Year period with early finishes and Saturday / Sunday timetables in operation on some days. Please check with the bus operators for full details (contact details above).
