Save money with £1 Wednesdays on Red 4!

published: Monday, November 19 2018

Wednesdays are set to become a red-letter day for money savers in Ramsbottom and Bury, as bus operator Rosso reveals a cut-price £1 flat fare for all on its recently-launched Red 4 bus service.

The very special offer, which runs from now until Christmas, means any single journey on Wednesdays anywhere on the Red 4 between the two towns will be just one pound – offering cost-conscious customers the chance to beat the peak and travel midweek for an amazing value for money low price.

News of the discount deal is already being welcomed by traders at the world famous Bury Market as a boost for traditional town centre shopping in the crucial run-up to Christmas – with many setting their stall out for what’s expected to be their busiest time of the year.

Our Operations Manager, Anthony Fiocca said: “We launched the Red 4 with high-quality revitalised buses at the start of September, and since then the reaction from our customers has been fantastic.

“With Christmas just around the corner, we wanted to celebrate the success of the service and offer our valued customers something extra to help with their Christmas shopping, and so from now until the end of the year, any single journey on the Red 4 will cost just one pound. 

“Each Red 4 bus has quilted leather seating, free Wi-Fi, and USB at seat power, on a high-quality service that people really want to be seen on.

“Our Red 4 buses run to Bury Interchange, just a short stroll away from Bury’s award-winning market, with hundreds of stalls in the open air and under cover halls offering an amazing variety of bargains.

“With Bury Markets fully open every Wednesday, it’s a great opportunity to relax and arrive in style, while supporting some of the best market shopping in Britain in the middle of the week when there’s more space to enjoy it all – and without any stress from driving or parking.

“Our £1 fare will make Wednesdays wonderful for shoppers and businesses – we can’t wait to welcome customers who want to save money and do it in style!

Red 4 buses run every 15 minutes with top-quality revitalised buses creating a high quality, high frequency service with buses from early morning until late at night. 

Customers can relax in comfortable quilted leather seats and enjoy all the comforts of a chauffeur driven journey to work or the shops, with free Wi-Fi and USB at-seat power to stay in touch throughout –  and, with its designer red and yellow livery set to turn heads, no-one can miss Red 4!
