Glossop Local Link

Glossop Local LinkGlossop Local Link – Replacement for the 202 Glossop to Hyde Evenings and Sundays.

Since April 2016, the 202 from Glossop to Hyde no longer runs in the evenings (Monday to Saturday), or all day Sunday / Bank Holidays.

This has happened due to a combination of Transport for Greater Manchester, and Derbyshire County Council (to save the 394) withdrawing the subsidy that covered the evening and Sunday service.

In its place, DCC has arranged with TFGM for it’s Local Link service to be extended into Glossopdale to cover the route of the 202 as detailed below.

If you book online – you need to book 24 hours in advance, and if you book via the phone (in theory) a minimum of an hour before your journey – but I would recommend where possible the day before.
