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 Traveline's website.
