“VH2” Walkden circular bus service launched

July 25, 2016

A minibus operated by Diamond Buses has recently started running a circular route linking Walkden station with the town centre and Hilton Lane.

At first the service was not well-publicised but full details are now available from the TfGM bus timetable library.

The service is provided as part of the Burgess Farm planning permission and will run for 5 years.

Reflecting the bus’ primary purpose of serving commuters on the new housing estate, from 7am until noon it runs in anti-clockwise from Hilton Lane to the station and town centre. After noon the direction of travel is reversed.

Fares are:

  • Adult: 50p Single or £1 Day Return
  • Under 16’s: 25p Single or 50p Day Return
