I don't have data to back this up, but the Blacon 1 and 1A are always very well patronised and I imagine they are very profitable indeed.
The Saughall 15 and 15A perhaps less so, but I would still expect the figures to be good when compared with other routes.

Unless things have changed they were profitable in times of Chester bus hence arriva registering the route at the time the council were taking arriva to court I really don't see stagecoach walking away from these routes as take these out of the loop I really couldn't see stagecoach Chester surviving. you so have to question the legitimacy of these rumours, if these are found to be untrue it could damage the reputation of the company

Figures are good yes and that is why Arriva would want it to themselves. It is only a roumer I have been told by a mate but it is a load of chinese whispers I will admit so it could have all been passed down slightly wrong. That is exactly how I heard the roumer though.

Stagecoach are NOT pulling out of the Blacon routes just making ammendments to the 15, This information is from a source at gilmoss

I would never expect Stagecoach to pull out of anything unless there was something beneficial to them
