Team Pennine boosting key links
Transdev-owned Team Pennine is running a boosted service between Halifax and Rochdale.
The operator only used to run the route on Sundays, but is now taking on all the weekday journeys as well, with a new timetable featuring departures every hour Monday to Saturday, and four trips each way on Sunday.
The bus firm is promising to launch better, brighter refreshed low-emission buses onto the 587 route ‘very soon’.
The boost for the 587 cross-Pennine link, which is run on behalf of Metro, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s bus and rail brand, is part of wider Team Pennine improvements planned in the Halifax area.
“We’re looking forward to providing the 587 route seven days a week, with an easy-to-follow timetable and friendly drivers to welcome everyone on board” – Team Pennine General Manager, Joy Devine
Team Pennine General Manager, Joy Devine, said: “We’re looking forward to providing the 587 route seven days a week, with an easy-to-follow timetable and friendly drivers to welcome everyone on board.
“The changes also mean Team Pennine’s value for money ticket range will now be available for travel on the 587 seven days a week – good news for fuel savers at a time when everyone is watching the pennies.
“We also plan to introduce refreshed low-emission buses in our distinctive pink Team Pennine livery to our 587 and 502 routes very soon, to deliver a brighter and better service while also helping to win over more new customers to the bus.”
