Hi, I've done a search on here and checked SYPTE website but I can't find out what sort of bus services will be running on Good Friday, the weekend and Bank Holiday Monday.
I know the timetables are sometimes changed to a Saturday or Sunday service, I'm just not sure on which days what level of service will be available.
Does anyone know?

That's what I thought but when I asked for timetables enquiries on the transport website for Good Friday, normal service times came up, which can't be right surely
I always assumed Good Friday was a sort of bank holiday.

Don't know about buses, but trams are operating a normal service except on Bank Holiday Monday, which will operate a Sunday service.

May end up doing just that, don't fancy standing at the bus stop for ages if it is only a Sunday service on Friday and Monday
