With the North East Wales thread being popular. I thoyhht it was time to start a thread for North West Wales. In particular following major chnages during the past few months.

SH51MHO additionally operated the final jourmeys on the 1A, 1N & 1F on Saturday 1st of September.

Following a weekend of unknown. Anglesey based Gwynfor Coaches are now operating former Huw’s services in the Caernarfon at no charge to passengers

  St Helens Bus Network Review (2018)
Posted by: St Helens Rider - 11/07/2018 15:22 - Replies (30)

Consultation now open on Merseytravel's website:

Rather than adding to the thread about the previous network review, thought it better to start a fresh thread. No problem if Mods feel happier with this being merged with the older thread.

  Traws Cymru Expansion
Posted by: iMarkeh - 08/07/2018 03:20 - Replies (15)

Currently being tendered by Conwy and Powys council are new routes

T10 Bangor – Betws y Coed – Corwen – Chirk – Oswestry (starts Aug 13th for 5 years)

T11: Machynlleth – Newtown – Welshpool – Wrexham
T12: Machynlleth – Newtown – Montgomery – Welshpool – Wrexham

There is no more info for the T11/T12 however on another forum, someone states that tenders were collected during recent Powys Council re-tendering.

I haven't seen any info on any other threads hence making a new one.

  New Rivacre Shuttle Bus route
Posted by: iMarkeh - 25/06/2018 06:25 - Replies (3)

I have just come across this proposed timetable from March 2018 for a shuttle from the Vauxhall Football Club site to Overpool Station. The bus will be free to residents and will run half hourly. Has anyone heard who is planned to run this bus? It does say on the website no confirmed start date but someone must have heard something. Has anyone got any other info?

  Chester Heritage Tours Ltd - Ceased operating
Posted by: CTL45 - 31/05/2018 16:57 - No Replies

Chester Heritage Tours operated their last tour of the city yesterday, Wednesday 30 May. It is believed that owner/operator Mike Edwards has decided to call it a day after many seasons operating around Chester in 946WAE, the replica of a London General B type body on a 1960's Bedford chassis. The bus itself has apparently been sold to a buyer in the London / Essex area. The website has a short message confirming that operations have ceased -
Oddly, the service has not been cancelled with the Traffic Commissioners.

  Stockport and Cheshire East councils guided busway proposals
Posted by: knutstransport - 27/05/2018 12:21 - Replies (12)

No idea how a Wilmslow to Manchester Airport busway will work, considering the funding for the Wilmslow to Manchester Airport bus service was withdrawn on 1st April and an attempt of a commercial Macclesfield-Wilmslow-Manchester Airport service by D&G Bus has been unsuccessful and will be withdrawn next month. If normal buses can't make a profit between Wilmslow and Manchester Airport and no-one is willing to fund them, then how can a guided busway possibly work?
