    Local Buses or 'Buzzes' as we know them as

    by carlrea Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    long awaited Metro

    If you dont have access to the car most people rely on the local bus or the 'buzz' as us local's like to call them.. - plenty of them and so you wont get stuck around Oldham unless your out in the sticks and even then you shouldn't have to wait that long.
    Failing that the train network is also pretty good especially getting from Oldham to city centre Manchester taking less than 15 minutes.We are hopefully back on track (groan) with the long anticipated Metro link that was only recently approved after complaints from Oldhamers.

    The Bus station

    Oldham has a swanky new bus station which looks a little like a UFO has landed but it's design is quirky, fresh and modern.

    All the local buses go from here & unlike the buses in my hometown they will give change if you do not have to correct money.

    Check the website for up to date times etc.

    CHEAPSIDE BUS STATION

    This smart station opened in January 2001. It won two awards within two years of opening.
    The bus station has buses from first, stagecoach, national express and a couple of other small operators.

    The journey to Oldham from Huddersfield is very pleasant. It runs from Huddersfield to Manchester passing through Saddleworth moor.
    The 184 service runs every hour Monday to Saturday.

    Although there are plenty of bus's to and around Oldham with some good routes they unfortunately can not be relied upon to get you anywhere for a certain time as they rarely seem to run on time and sometimes you can wait 30 or 40 minutes for a bus that should be every 10 minutes and it has been known for them to cancel a bus that only runs every hour.

    Oldham Mumps Tram Station

    Oldham Mumps Tram Stop

    When I arrived in Rochdale I got the East Disbury Tram to Oldham Mumps from Rochdale Railway Station. The journey took approximately 20 minutes and cost me 2.90 gbp for a Off Peak Day Return.

    The tram stop is a short walk to the Oldham Coliseum where I went. You must buy a ticket before boarding the train - ensure you bring a credit/debit card with you as all tickets machines don't accept cash (which I've discovered!).

    The trams replaces the railway services that once served Oldham town centre and its environs.
