Our thoughts are with the family and friends affected by the atrocious events that occurred in the city centre last night. It is heartwarming to see the way members of the community have come together to help support the emergency services and help anyone in need.
As a result of the ongoing police presence within the city centre, some major roads have been closed, meaning that Shudehill Interchange and Salford Central will be unaccessable.
This means that the 27 will only be operating from Swinton to Salford Shopping Centre, and the 73 will only be operating from Clifton to Salford Shopping Centre.
Once we get an idea of how the roads are, and local traffic levels, we may adjust the routes accordingly during the day, and once we have confirmation from Transport for Greater Manchester that roads have been reopened, services will return to normal.
If you have any questions, please call us on 01942 888 893. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to your journeys, but we hope you can appreciate the necessity to do this, following the severity of the events that have occurred.

Quick update on the 27 and 73:
The 27 is able to get as far as Trinity Way, but no further into Manchester itself, as Deansgate and Victoria are still closed.
The 73 can now get as far as Ordsall, but no further as Oldfield Road is closed.
We will keep updating the current status of these services as and when the information is made available to us.
Thank you all for your patience during this difficult time.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed that this morning, the roads round Victoria Station would reopen from 0700, meaning that the 27 service can return to its normal route.
We would like to offer our gratitude for the amazing work done by GMP, as well as the North West Ambulance Service, and the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) over the last week, and hope that terrible events like this never happen again.
Also, our customers have been very understanding of the situation, and what has needed to happen in order to keep everything running as smoothly as possible under the circumstances, so thank you all.
