Arriva North West - Winsford Depot
RE: Arriva North West - Winsford Depot
All down to cost. D&G drivers are on around £1.50 per hour less than Arriva Winsford drivers so over a year that is quite a bit less on a tender price

Works for me

Arriva are horrendous at putting on service updates. if it's a tendered service, you have almost no chance of an update. I don't know why but they just aren't bothered about social media. The social media team can't make any updates until they know the changes so I think part of it is a big lack of communication within the company.

The main issue with Social Media is Arriva's are based in Luton. They most likely dont know where Crewe is for example.

Is that allowing for what D&G call an enhanced Sunday rate?

If I go to Winsford where will be the best bet to find the 3 Enviro400s?

Just recently there seems to have been a couple on the 84 (Crewe - Chester) each day otherwise they seem to turn up on anything; Schools, 29, 31, 37, 84, even the 1 in Northwich some days but its very rare to see all 3 out on the same day.
Best places would be either Crewe Bus Station or Winsford Town Centre, with the latter particularly likely between 3:30pm & 4:30pm if one or more is on a school bus. Be prepared to wait though because, if you jut miss one, it might take a few hours for it to return on a cycle.

Good luck
