Greater Manchester bus route 43 is a popular bus service that operates in Greater Manchester between Piccadilly Gardens and Manchester Airport 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.


Route 43 is one of many "Skyline" links that connect various places to Manchester Airport. Prior to 2007 it ran every 10 minutes during the day, but on 2 September 2007 a night service was introduced, with buses operating every 30 minutes due to popular demand for a night link.[1][2][3]

Current operation

Route 43 serves the busy Wilmslow Road bus corridor, which includes universities, hospitals, and hundreds of homes and businesses. It then serves West Didsbury and Northenden, before going on to Benchill and serving Wythenshawe bus station. It then terminates at the Manchester Airport railway station. Buses run every 10 minutes during the day, and every 30 minutes at other times. It is the only route in Greater Manchester to operate on Christmas Day.[4]
