Manchester bus 86

Today on #AYearOfBuses, we’re taking a look at a great northern bus route we didn’t get chance to feature back on day 86!

Stagecoach Manchester’s 86 is a long-standing bus route in the city, linking the well-to-do suburb of Chorlton in the south of the city with Hulme and the city centre.

Now a Stagecoach stronghold, like most lucrative bus routes in Manchester it’s had its fair share of competition over the years. Gorton-based bus bandits, UK North, took several pops at the route over the 1990s and 2000s, forcing Stagecoach to break out its Magic Bus brand on the 86 through the early 2000s.
