About Diamond North West

Diamond North West provides bus services in the Greater Manchester, Wigan and Lancashire area. It is Diamond’s aim to deliver a frequent, reliable, clean and friendly traveling environment for its customers.

Who are Diamond North West?

Diamond North West was formed from the purchase of South Lancs Travel by Rotala Plc in 2015. We operate an extensive commercial network along with tendered services on behalf of Transport for Greater Manchester.

Making travel easier for everyone....

Our investment in vehicles has lead to the introduction of newer, improved, low-floor and fully DDA compliant buses. We have recently invested in new Ticket Machines with GPS tracking, which enables us to now offer bus location information in real time and next stop announcements through our new interactive Mobile App.

Smarter Ticketing...

At Diamond we are keen to develop accessible and convenient ticketing options for passengers too. With the introduction of Contactless Payment on-board all Diamond Buses, tickets up to the value of £45 can now be purchased on-board with any Contactless Payment Card or Apple Pay.

As well as being available on-bus, selected tickets and passes are also now available through our new Mobile App, so they are available on passengers’ smartphones at the touch of a button while they’re on the move!
