Maytree Travel suspends buses in Bolton and Wigan

Maytree Travel has suspended 40 bus services in parts of Greater Manchester due to "insurmountable" problems.

“This is really bad news for people in Wigan Borough who rely on the services this company provided. Unfortunately, journeys are likely to be disrupted for at least a few days.

“We’re working closely with Transport for Greater Manchester to minimise the impact and find a solution quickly. It’s frustrating for passengers but I want to reassure them we will do all we can to get these bus services back up and running as soon as possible.”

– Cllr David Molyneux, deputy leader of Wigan Council
