Glossop Local Link

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

As you may be aware, with effect from the end of Saturday 2nd April, the 202 from Glossop to Hyde will no longer run in the evenings (Monday to Saturday), or all day Sunday / Bank Holidays.

This is happening 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.
