Arriva North West - Green Lane Depot
RE: Arriva North West - Green Lane Depot
Looking at the service changes for the 23rd it seems there will be a PVR drop on the 12/13 and 18 witch would allow 2467 and 2471 to be Withdrawn once again, unless they are going to release other Buses to other depots?

It's to give the routes extra running time so it'll hopefully reduce the number of delays

4804 is on the 15 today. Could become more "the norm" once more drivers are trained on them

I do hope so. The bus lanes which remain suspended need restoring as a matter of urgency - because from my experience opening them to all road users has made absolutely no difference at all and has actually increased journey times on certain routes. It was a very poor decision to suspend them on a trial basis in the first place and the sooner it's reversed by the new mayor (I would say it's almost certainly going to be Steve Rotheram) the better

Joe Anderson will not be out of office. The election is for the Mayor of the Liverpool City Region (Merseyside and Halton) not Liverpool City Council. I don't know if the newly elected mayor has the powers to reintroduce bus lanes within the city boundary. Also, this election is not related to Brexit, in case you are wondering.

Observations like these will be short-lived as routes 26/27 are due their electric single-decks later this year.

I heard a rumour that he will attempt to stand in the seat of the likely Liverpool City Region Mayor. Talk about swings and roundabouts!

It IS related to the General Election though, as the short notice could give Grayling the oppurtunity to "filibuster" the Bus Services Bill out of existance, thus reducing the powers of the Elected Mayors for GM, LCR and the other 4(?) areas. Though, as you already have QPs on Merseyside it might not mean so much in practice.
