Residents will no longer be able to travel from Rochdale to Burnley on 589 bus route
Date published: 30 November 2019
Rochdale’s 589 bus route will no longer travel directly from Rochdale to Burnley.
As of 8 December, residents using First Buses’ 589 service will be required to change buses at Todmorden to reach Burnley.
A spokesperson for First Buses said: “As part of a regular review of our bus network we are introducing changes to the 589/590/592 from December 8. The 589 will run between Rochdale and Todmorden only with the Todmorden – Burnley section of the 589 withdrawn due to insufficient demand.”
First buses will be removing part of the hourly service which connects more rural areas like Cliviger to Todmorden and Rochdale.
The First spokesperson added: “Customers will be able to travel by Burnley by connecting with the 592 at Todmorden.
“From December 8, customers from Rochdale will now benefit from a direct service through to Halifax on the 590.”
The 590 bus currently runs from Rochdale Interchange to Halifax Town Centre through Littleborough, Todmorden and Hebden Bridge.
The change in the service means the only direct public transport route for the borough to Burnley will be via train.
An alternative route for those living in the borough who want to catch a bus can take the 464 Rosso service to Bacup, and change for the Transdev 8 service from Bacup to Burnley.
The 8 will also continue onto Todmorden, replacing the Rosso 7 service from Bacup, which previously connected the town to Todmorden.
