I have just been informed by First Bus the following.
Unite have confirmed two further days of industrial action at our Oldham depot next week.
First Bus are now advising customers to plan for alternative travel arrangements on Tuesday 18 & Thursday 20 January 2022 when no services will operate on both days. This includes school services and the Yellow School Bus. Some routes will be covered by alternative services and details can be found on the Transport for Greater Manchester website www.tfgm.com. The Vantage V1 and V2 services, based at a depot in Bolton for routes from Leigh and Atherton to Manchester Royal Infirmary, are unaffected.
First say they are actively communicating the latest position with regards travel and refunds. Customers with pre-bought tickets for both dates will be given a refund or replacement tickets to use for future travel.
