Bus stops

Passengers can find bus stop timetable displays at over 1021 bus stops in Cheshire East. We try to update displays at bus stops the day before a service change but this can be a few days either side. We put the date at the top of each display to show when it was last updated.

Across Cheshire East 678 stops have raised kerbs installed to make boarding and alighting easier for disabled passengers and passengers with pushchairs.

You can report any errors / queries using the Bus stop infrastructure and timetable display reporting form or phone 0300 123 5500 (Monday to Friday 9:00 - 16:00).

Public transport is now provided by Transport Service Solutions (TSS) - a company owned and controlled by Cheshire East Council.
