Trent Barton stopped running that bus to close to Alton because their sister company nottsderby runs the x52.No no that bus is still running I was saying I use that one normally so if x52 isn't back by the time of my visit it won't be a problem
The timetable won't open for me, can anyone else open it?
The timetable for the x71 has now been confirmed.
Even when the park had their own operation the timing issues existed. The problem there is that bus services have to run to a regular timetable, published quite far in advance, and it's very difficult to align that timetable to park openings - even if such alignment was possible you have to fit the service in with a regular rota.Although it's good to see some bus links - let's not beat about the bush.
The services are dreadful: poorly timed, overpriced and infrequent.

Is Manchester airport some sort of local transport hub like Heathrow acts like? Else seems a bit oddMe again, your public transport correspondent.
In addition to the above bus between Buxton and Alton Towers, there is actually a connection from Manchester Airport via Stockport that forms this new service. Meaning that there will be a bus from Manchester Airport via Stockport and Buxton to the park on Sundays and Bank Holidays starting this weekend.
