Jeffrey Shaw

ALSO

New threads have been created today, as follows

1. Mottram Moor delays and the long-promised bypass.

2. "Are Snake and Woodhead open?"

 

Please post on the present thread only re the bus service.

Perhaps a tele call to Hulleys will tell if the bus stops between the Snake Inn and Glossop

Very convenient if it stops at the Snake summit

Sedith, are people going to stop going to Manchester once HS2 is built? No certainty that the eastern part to sheffield and Leeds will even be built

 

part of the Northern powerhouse proposal is to build better East west links.

Yes that would be great for walkers.

This service is good news for walkers who want to access routes off snake pass.  I'd think that is where a lot of business will come from. I'll use it myself.

Me too.

Snake Inn and summit would be appreciated.

Well as it is not run by SYPTE then I would guess that they may well think about their customers and where they might want to go on route

But SYPTE do not run any buses at all- and have not done so since privatisation.

They do fund some services but have managed to shirk most of their responsibilities there amongst many other things

Went across the Snake today and I can confirm there are new bus stops on the summit (one on each side). Think there are also stops near the old Snake Pass Inn and Ladybower.

Hey up PaddyMc and thanks for that

Going to be days when the weather is good that you can't get on that bus

Have Hulleys any double deckers ?

They have but have stated categorically that they will not be used. I feel fairly sure one of their small single decks will be sufficient, certainly for now where nobody can use it other than within South Yorkshire or Within Greater Manchester but not between the 2 and not to intermediate points  from either end. Be interesting to see if Hulleys enforce that.

Good evening busdriver1.  Got my thick head on at the moment !!  I presume you are saying that a planned journey from Sheffield to the Snake Summit will not be allowed ?
