#AYearOfBuses 256: Manchester – Flixton
One of Manchester’s most important bus routes is our winner today on #AYearOfBuses – the 256.
Stagecoach Manchester’s 256 runs from Flixton, in Trafford, with Stretford, Old Trafford, Hulme and the city centre. With a bus better than every 10 mins through the daytime, it’s one of the city’s most frequent bus routes, running along the important Chester Road corridor through Trafford.
Along the way, you’ll pass within a stone’s throw of Old Trafford, home to the world-famous Manchester United FC, of course. And the 256 stops close to Stretford Arndale, historically important as one of the UK’s first ‘American style’ malls, having opened in 1969.
