Was it not the case, that when the Oldham Heavy-Rail Loop Line was closed, there was a statement made to the effect that bus services on the route (of which Manchester to Oldham is a major section for journeys made) would be much increased, until the Manchester Mertrolink system was fully operational on the Oldham and Rochdale line, which was being made suitable for such a mode of transport.

I do note that First Manchester run the vast majority of the services to which you refer and also note that this company received a very large fine and a "public warning" from the Traffic Commissioner as a result of not heeding past warnings about their performance adherence to the timings on some of their routes.
