Old Bus Routes Wirral

The 33B/34B was a circular service that was introduced for a period (not sure on the dates) that linked Seacombe to Woodside over Tower Bridge and then followed the current 413 route back to Seacombe. My memory is a bit hazy, I would have only been about 8 or 9 at the time, so I'm unsure if this was as well as the 3B or instead of, perhaps fellow members could clarify?

33B/34B think was introduced either around the time of the Merseybus/GM Buses wars, or just shortly after, there was no 3B after 33B/34B was introduced, Arriva withdrew 33B/34B & replaced Seacombe-Woodside via Moreton section with current 413.

3B was introduced late 80s when the 4 & 5 routes were cut,

3A was introduced as the 36 at D-Reg, renumbered to 3A in the Winter 89 changes, the 3A also interworked with the 37 then Woodside-West Kirby, Arriva renumbered the 3A to 423, then couple of years later extended the 423 to Liverpool mainly to keep the interworking with the 437 when the Evening & Sunday 437 was introduced, now 423 apart from first couple of Evening journeys, doesn't regally interwork with any other routes.

Interesting stuff, thanks MTL0201. Remember well riding Atlanteans on the 33B frequently between Liscard and Wallasey Village. Alongside the 7/7A/8/8A and, if it was a Sunday, the 8E which operated to Town Meadow only.

With regards to interworking, its something that seems to have diminished as routes have been simplified over the years.

Still a few interworkings today as
407 interworks with the 471/472
410 interworks with the 411
432/433 interworks with the 437

Merseybus era think was
Daytime 431/432/433/434, interworked with the 1, later 10A when 10A had short New Brighton-Woodside journeys introduced, Evening & Sunday 431 interworked the 7A/8E
As mentioned 3A interworked with the 37
Not sure of the rest
