Following the earlier acquisition of First Manchester’s operations running from Queens Road depot, Go North West has now launched its services which will initially replicate existing routes although it promises “enhancements” in the future.
David Cutts, interim managing director, Go North West, says: “We are pleased to be running buses from Queens Road, and we look forward to serving the people of Manchester. Go North West has committed to providing our passengers with a high-quality service and continuing the record bus passenger satisfaction score of 92 per cent that Go-Ahead achieved this year.
“There is a refurbishment and replacement plan in place, to update the current fleet of buses and we look forward to announcing further improvements in the coming weeks.
“I’d also like to thank the Go North West team who have worked on the transition process and the staff at Queens Road who have been very welcoming and who officially join the GNW team today.”
