  Happy 18th Birthday Arriva Merseyside
Posted by: buses7675 - 18/02/2018 13:24 - Replies (6)

Today marks the 18th anniversary of the purchase of MTL by Arriva!

Very significant day locally for bus services, it resulted in the creation of Glenvale Transport too and latterly Stagecoach Merseyside.

  D Jones & Son to Cease Trading
Posted by: T42 PVM - 16/12/2017 10:23 - Replies (49)

Just seen this

Quote:School Transport Notice:
D Jones & Son, the bus company, has informed us that they will cease trading after last operation on Saturday December 16th, 2017.
This affects school and public transport in the Llangollen area. The County Council has made arrangements to cover the school bus from the Chirk & Froncysyllte area to Ysgol Dinas Brân on and from Monday December 18th until the end of term with alternative operator E Jones & Son.
Bus services will continue to operate between Llangollen and Wrexham on service 5 (Arriva) and service Traws Cymru T3 (Lloyd’s Coaches).
Pupils who catch buses from the Wrexham direction who normally use D Jones service 5/5C are warned that there may be insufficient seats at school times to and from Ysgol Dinas Brân. Arriva services continue to operate every 40 minutes.

  Bus Franchising in Greater Manchester
Posted by: Barney - 13/12/2017 12:44 - Replies (16)

I hear that Andy Burnham is meeting with various stake-holders today to begin the process of introducing bus franchising in Greater Manchester. I would be interested to hear the views of members on this topic and wonder whether Steve Rotherham might follow suit.

  Red Routes in Liverpool
Posted by: Barney - 08/12/2017 12:18 - Replies (2)

A lot of comments followed the removal of most of the bus lanes in Liverpool two years ago and now, it would seem, the City Council is considering introducing three Red Routes to speed up traffic movement. I wonder what members think of this proposal?

Personally, as a motorist and bus user, I think that it is an excellent idea.

The full Christmas & New Year guide is now on the Merseytravel website

Fairly similar to last year, Christmas Day services appear to be identical and all operated by Stagecoach again.

Merseytravel have announced the Knowsley Bus Review. Survey closes 8th December. Changes are planned for July 2018. By May services will need to be registered so I think around Feb there will be the 2nd survey with all the proposed changes.

Not sure if anyone as read it on the liverpool echo but both stagecoach and arriva have had a ballot to strike and could both walk out together over pay.
