Shuttle to the Shops

We are pleased to announce we have a new service, Shuttle to the Shops!

Shuttle to the Shops is a bus service from Bollington every fortnight on a Wednesday afternoon going to various shopping destinations in the nearby area. It is run by the Bridgend Centre and funded by Cheshire Community Action. The destinations are run on a rota basis (listed at the bottom of this page).

This service is available to anyone and costs £4 per trip.

You can catch the bus at the following points:

1:30pm Cotton Tree roundabout

1:35pm Bridgend Centre

1:45pm Hawthorn Road

1:50pm Bollington Cross, Princess Drive

Please be on time as the bus will not be able to wait for you.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate wheelchairs on the bus at this time. We can however accommodate two walking frames.

The return time will depend on the shopping destination and traffic conditions but we aim to be back in Bollington no later than 5pm. The bus will drop people off at the stops listed above (Bollington Cross, Hawthorn Road, Bridgend Centre and Cotton Tree) and will not be able to go to other destinations.

You will need to register the first time you use the service (form included). Places will be limited so you will need to reserve your place on the bus every time you wish to travel. We prefer you to pay beforehand in order to reserve your place. We take card if paying at the Bridgend Centre and it will be cash only on the bus. Unfortunately, if you cancel or change the date you travel with less than 48 hours’ notice we cannot offer you a refund.

For more information and details on how to register please contact: Tel: 01625 576311 or Email:
