Stagecoach Manchester has put former Stagecoach East MAN/ALX300s 22322-24 into service at Middleton, where they have replaced similar 22221/24/41 which are now for disposal. Dart SLF 33873 has returned to service at Ashton, whilst a surprising move is of Trident 17638 from Sharston to Stockport. The allocation of MAN/ALX300 22321 to Stockport resulted in the withdrawal for disposal of 22808.
