Some key High Peak bus routes continue running

Three High Peak bus services which were set to be temporarily suspended are to continue following support from Derbyshire County Council and other local bus operators.

Due to unexpected staff shortages, High Peak Buses were unable to maintain all its services from Wednesday 27 January.

Working alongside local bus operators, the council secured the continued service of the following bus routes:

  • 394 Glossop – Charlesworth – Marple – Stepping Hill Hospital, to be operated by Hulleys of Baslow
  • 113 Ashbourne – Hulland Ward – Belper, to be operated by Hulleys of Baslow
  • 442 Buxton – Longnor – Warslow – Hartington – Ashbourne, to be operated by Andrews of Tideswell.

Other changes include:

  • 58 Buxton – Macclesfield to be operated by D & G Buses on a reduced timetable.

Councillor Simon Spencer, Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said: “Although we’re currently in a national lockdown and there are fewer passengers using buses, these journeys are important for key and essential workers who have no other means of travel.

“We’re delighted these services which are normally provided on our behalf by High Peak Buses can continue and we hope they will be of benefit to residents in the High Peak who rely on them.

“I’d like to thank our staff for responding to this situation in such a short space of time and to the bus operators who have stepped in to help ensure these routes can continue until High Peak Buses are able to resume full operation.”

Some other High Peak bus services are operating on a reduced timetable.
