Bus stop

This bus stop is on Mottram Road, opposite Morrisons supermarket. It seems there is scheme in operation whereby if you want to know when the next bus is due you can send a text message and find out.

According to the GMPTE website
Passengers are being encouraged to learn their local bus stop codes or save them to their mobile phones. Codes are generally seven or eight letters long and are designed to be memorable. Text messages cost 25p plus the standard charge from your service provider.

As a non-texter I won't be using the service myself.
