First Group on the Wirral
First Group on the Wirral
Couple of questions about First Group's Chester and Wirral division prior to it being sold to Stagecoach. As I understand it, it was similar to the network operated by Stagecoach today. However, there's a couple of services operated by First which no longer run today. In 2003, there was a 92 from Birkenhead to Beechwood via Claughton. And in 2007, there was a 39 from Liverpool to Liscard via Moreton and Wallasey. Can someone help fill in the gaps?

RE: First Group on the Wirral
39 Liverpool-Liscard only operated for a couple of years, although the timetable was quite supposed to be 20 minute frequency, but had gaps in the service, as some of the buses went onto school run, 39 was cut Birkenhead-Liscard before being withdrawn

First 92 is now Arriva 492/495, not sure when Arriva took over the 92, but Arriva diverted the 495 which for a short time was Moreton Cross-Woodside & combined with the 92 to form the circular

There was a First/Arriva bus war 2006, First introduced there own 32/33 covering Arriva 432/433, Arriva responded introducing routes 441 Bromborough-Woodside, 470 Woodchurch-Woodside, think the 470 went Arrowe Park Hospital
