I wonder what these are for Schools or Replacements for the B7TLs?

Great news to hear more DB250s have arrived

I spoke to a member of WOB's management team last year and they said they were a fan of them

Fair play, that bus really suits the WOB livery.

I think the V plate Volvo B7’s aren’t far off being retired. I think 151 has been withdrawn but not a hundred per cent sure. I personally prefer the Volvos to the DAFs but the DAFs are proving to be pretty reliable on the whole...

Some changes to the network coming up:
https://www.warringtonsownbuses.co.uk/ne...ce-changes

... the 4A is finally getting renumbered 4, a triumph for common sense lol.

Amazingly, the service disruptions page has actually been updated (though there is still heavily out-of-date information about services such as 31 and 15A which have not existed for a while).

There may be some debranding as the 32 goes down to every 20 minutes (so requiring 3 vehicles, down from 4) and the 4A is finally getting renumbered 4, a triumph for common sense lol.

The 32 is only every 20 minutes on Saturdays though - still should be every 15 minutes Monday to Friday?

Ah yes, sorry, missed that bit.
As far as I'm concerned there's very little reason to catch Warrington's 32 though, unless you have money to burn - lower frequencies sometimes, more restricted journey lengths, higher prices. You can actually get to Liverpool and back (or Southport or ...) on Arriva for less than it costs for a return from Penketh to Warrington.

Out of interest how much do Arriva charge for a day return from Widnes to Warrington?
