Stockport Shuttle at Stockport Station


Since 9th January, the section of Station Road in front of the railway station has been closed to traffic as work on the Stockport Exchange Masterplan continues and the site's hoarding line is extended across the road. This stage of works will run from January to July 2016. During this time, vehicles from the A6 can only to get to the station via Railway Road. A new temporary pull in / turning area with a bus stop and taxi rank has been created for passengers at the end of Railway Road between the station and the Multi Storey Car Park.

The #300 Stockport Shuttle is a free bus that takes a circuitous route around the town. It is a good way to get from the railway station to the bus station but less useful in the opposite direction.

  1. That parking garage produces some great patterns, and the bus is a perfect focal point.

  2. Construction seems a way of life here at present, with all the delays that brings.

  3. Stylish and large windscreen on the shuttle bus. And the background lighting from the building creates a chequerboard effect.

  5. That is a useful piece of information. I am travelling to Manchester by train this Saturday from London and it usually stops at Stockport. Won't have time to stop off this time.

  7. Interesting photo. We once flew into Manchester from NYC and drove to Ironbridge, staying at Jackfield. At our B&B there, we met the nicest couple from Stockport who were vacationing there. :-) That is the first I'd heard of Stockport.
