Stagecoach Dennis Trident Donated to Museum of Transport Greater Manchester

Image provided by MoTGM Back in 1999, the Museum of Transport Greater Manchester held an ‘accessible transport’ event with help and displays to enable less-mobile visitors to sample the preserved buses whose high floors and steep steps made them hard to experience.  To highlight the progress being made, Stagecoach Manchester brought along the very first of its new generation of something called a ‘low floor’ double deck bus with no entrance steps and easier access. It was their number 612, a Dennis Trident 2 with Alexander ALX400 body, brand new and yet to enter service. Fast forward to 2021 and that very same bus is back in the Museum again – as a preserved exhibit, kindly donated by Stagecoach Manchester to represent the new generation of buses with better accessibility. After use as a driver trainer, at the age of 22 years, it enters the growing ranks of preserved buses from the turn of the century and in due course it’ll be painted into the iconic stripes livery.

Additional School Bus Services throughout Merseyside

To aid with social distancing for public bus users when schools return in September, Merseytravel is introducing ‘dedicated school bus services’ that specifically serve schools on some busy journeys.

Additional services will operate for use by school children only and will operate with an ‘S’ prefix in front of their normal service number and will display ‘School Children only’ beneath their destination.

A list of these journeys can be found below. This list will be regularly updated with any changes and journeys may be subject to change based on demand and requirement, so please check the Merseytravel website regularly to ensure that you are aware of any changes made.

The operator of the additional buses may be different from the usual operator, however the normal fares will be charged and the normal pre-paid tickets will still be accepted, although the weekly tickets won’t able to be purchased on the ‘S’ buses. Where possible, passengers are advised to pay with the exact fare. Contactless payments can also be made.
