#AYearOfBuses 284: red4 Bury – Ramsbottom
It’s day 284 on #AYearOfBuses! We’re taking a look at a recently revitalised route from Rosso.
Red 4 (previously known as the 484…which is why we’ve chosen it for day 284 on #AYearOfBuses) is Rosso’s high-spec link between Bury, in Greater Manchester, and the nearby town of Ramsbottom.
Unusually for such a short route – little over 20 mins end to end – red 4 is ultra high spec, designed squarely to tempt commuters from their cars. It features full quilted leather seats, contactless payments, USB power, free WiFi, and a bus every 15 mins through the daytime.
