Warrington Bus Wars
Warrington Bus Wars
In 1995, Lancashire Travel and North Western subsidiary Warrington Goldlines began competing with Warrington Borough Transport with copycat routes operating over WBT's core network. In retaliation, WBT began operating in Lancashire Travel and North Western's territory with services running to Wigan, St. Helens, Runcorn, Chester and Liverpool. Lancashire Travel pulled out in Summer 1996 with North Western and WBT reaching a truce a months later
