The 401 was a faster alternative to the 1 when trying to get to Chester, once again I think Arriva have shot themselves in the foot with regards to these QBPs (I say once again as the QBP on the 86 actually led to a service reduction with regards to what Arriva operated did it not?

A lot more people will be using the train more often to chester,including myself

I'll be another to utilise the train. The 10/A saw service cuts with the QBP too K853.

Bloody ridiculous if you ask me, these things are supposed to benefit passengers, how does a reduction in service, and a longer service at that, benefit passengers? It doesn't, simple, Merseytravel need to start listening to what passengers want, not what the fat cats in their nice plush offices want and what they THINK is best!

The only benefit I can see on the Liverpool - Chester corridor is the increase in Evening/Sunday journeys (expecially the improvement on Sunday evenings).

It's like if I get 0650 - 401 I get to Chester 0750 in Rhyl for 1000 now I will have to get 0640 - 811
Well done Merseytravel you Arriva & Forst have messed up another route

And the end of the 401 Sad

I'll be taking the train - over an hour and a half on the bus... They know where they can go!

Especially when you consider that a Saveaway is valid straight through to Chester, it just makes the train a much more viable option for through users.

You can't use a Saveaway on the bus all the way to Chester as it exits Merseyside en-route. Merseyrail allow Saveaways on their whole network, however. One reason why I don't bother going to Chester is because of the 401 - so boring! They've just made it even more boring!

I was referring to the use of the Saveaway on the train, hence my reference to it making the train an even more viable option ;-)
