Glossop Local Link Reminder : Don’t forget that although we have no normal buses on Gamesley (Charlesworth or Broadbottom) on Sunday’s and the forthcoming bank holiday Monday, we do have the Local Link Service.
Available from 6.00pm Monday to Saturday and from 10.30am Sundays and Bank Holidays, and running until 10.30pm, Local Link covers the route of the former Glossop to Hyde via Gamesley, Charlesworth and Broadbottom 202 service.
The main differences are that you have to register for the service, and also book in advance for each journey, additionally monthly tickets such as SystemOne or Get Me There are not currently valid, and there is a charge for concessionary pass holders, additionally the service picks you up from as near to your front door as possible rather than from a bus stop.
However, you pay a fixed fare – no matter how long your journey – so you’ll know exactly how much it will cost before you travel.
To register for the service, you can either ring 0161 200 6012 or fill out a form on the Transport for Greater Manchester website by clicking here
Once registered you can then book journeys either by phone on 0161 200 6012 or online by clicking here.
The call centre is open 7 days a week from 7am – 8pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 8pm Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.
You can book journeys up to a week in advance, and although you can sometimes ring up and get a same day journey, you are recommended to book 24 hours in advance (and if you use the online bookings system you have to book 24 hours in advance).
Once booked, you then just need to turn up for your journey and pay your fare to the driver, the current fare are :
Adult Single £2.70 : Adult Return £4.00
