For more information on the changes please read on below for details.
341 / 202 Glossop to Hyde Service
As reported early (Back to the Stotts), the Glossop to Hyde bus service will be having a change of operator with Stotts who used to run it, having regained the contract to run the service again.
In addition to the change of operator, there will also be a change of times with most buses running earlier than at current, with some exceptions.
As flagged previously the early morning 202 journeys from Glossop to Gamesley and back again on Monday to Friday’s remain at the same time as they are at current, but are renumbered to run as 341 journeys’ rather than 202.
However, on Saturday’s the change is more significant with the current 07.07 and 08.10 journeys re-timed to leave Glossop at 07.30 and 08.30, meaning that the first bus on a Saturday morning from Gamesley (to Glossop) will be at 07.38 instead of 07.15 as at current.
In terms of journeys to Hyde, the first two journeys in the morning from Glossop are re-timed to run later than at current, with journeys for the rest of the day re-timed to run earlier than at current, with the last buses to leave Glossop now been at 17.15 Monday to Fridays and 16.58 on Saturday’s.
From Hyde most journeys are re-timed to be run early than at current, meaning that journeys from Gamesley to Glossop will be just short of 10 minutes earlier than at current.
One particular issue for local’s who travel with a free pass, especially for Charlesworth residents is that with the times been roughly 10 minutes earlier than at current, the current 9.33am journey will now pass through Charlesworth at 9.24am which is before the 9.30am start of the free bus pass – similarly if the bus is early at Cottage Lane / Edale Crescent, meaning that the drivers may not be able to accept your free pass.
The next journey through to Glossop that will be valid is the 10.10 (at Charlesworth) 394 service.

Copies of the timetable will also be available at our forthcoming councillor’s surgery, the Gamesley Council Office, G52 Hub and Café Jericho.
394 Glossop to Stepping Hill Service
Changes to the timetable are also coming to the 394 Service, with the change been of a more optimistic nature by High Peak Buses, with all journeys except the first one from Stepping Hill been times to leave Stepping Hill 3 minutes earlier than at current.
The first journey back from Stepping Hill is also expected to get slightly quicker, with it been timed to be 2 minutes earlier than at current at Gamesley, with rest of the journeys expected to be 6 minutes quicker arriving at Gamesley 16 minutes past the hour instead of the current 22.
