Bus costs from Uttoxeter to Alton Towers

Im visiting Alton towers for a few days during Scarefest. Ive been trying to find out information on the 32A bus service but u can't find any.

Does anyone know how much the 32A costs from uttoxeter to Alton towers and if they run buses later during scarefest?

Im trying to workout if it makes more sense to bus it or get taxis. There will be 3 of us you see.

A day ticket is £5.50 for all First Potteries servives

Later buses?? Very unlikely

Thanks, on the first bus website it says standard potteries day tickets are not valid to Alton towers.

I was asking about the later bus as they seem to running the x39 at a later time during scarefest so I was wondering if the 32A is the same?

There are two versions of the potteries day ticket - one valid only around Stoke on Trent (£4) and the other on all the company's services (£5.50)

Given that the 32A timetable doesn't mention extra buses but the X32 does I'd think it reasonable to assume there are none on the 32A. Not 100% impossible, but unlikely.

The current timetable is only to early October though. You could try ringing the company.

Not sure why you've posted in the Hanley forum. Neither Alton Towers nor.Uttoxeter are in or near Hanley.

Well the bus routes being asked about start in Hanley and the company that runs them is based there

On that basis, if you wanted information on train services from Leicester to Melton Mowbray, you'd post in the Birmingham forum, as that is where the trains start from.

The bus 32A is the Hanley bus. I have r never been to either uttoxeter or hanley and there is not an uttoxeter forum. I thought as it is on the bus route someone might know and may have used it before.

I'm sorry I don't know about the bus costs, but don't see what aardvarks problem is with you posting on the Hanley forum !!!

The buses are potteries buses , PMT, running from Hanley.bus station.

There is a link to contact them and hopefully get and answer here :

I haven't got a problem. Just thought there might have been a better response to post in, say, Alton or Staffordshire.

I see what you are saying .( But the Hanley, Alton and Stoke on trent etc forums do actually come through to the Staffordshire forum as well.)
