From the 4th September 2022 there will be changes to some tickets in the Greater Manchester area in addition to the new capped fares that are being introduced. These changes only affect routes 199 and 394.

Return tickets will still be available for journeys operating between Greater Manchester and Derbyshire or Cheshire East, and for journeys wholly within Derbyshire or Cheshire East.
