All journeys will now operate via Markland Hill.

Minor timetable changes.

715 Bolton – Westhoughton – Wigan

Due to continued punctuality issues, the Monday-Saturday daytime service will now operate between Westhoughton and Bolton only. Unfortunately, we have not been able to operate the Wigan section of the route punctually, and to do so would require additional resources which would make the service financially unsustainable. Please contact TfGM for details of alternative services. Evening and Sunday journeys operated on behalf of TfGM will continue to operate the full Bolton – Wigan route and are unaffected.
