Some members of the forum that are not on facebook might like this post from Arriva North West on Facebook:

Jason: When are arriva going to announce the cancellation of the following services on wirral, 175 in heswall, 423 seacombe to Liverpool evenings & Sunday's, 118/119 , 419 & only running 418 between new ferry & birkenhead, seems like this company is getting smaller on wirral

Arriva: Hi Jason. The position with the 175 is that this is a tendered service currently operated by Arriva under contract to Merseytravel. We have given notice to Merseytravel that we are to withdraw from this contract and they have now put out an invitation to tender document for other operators to consider so there should not be a break in the provision of the service. Any announcements on this service would be the responsibility of Merseytravel.

In respect of the 118/119, these also are Merseytravel supported services and the funding is being withdrawn with the resulting cancellation of the services. This information has been distributed, published and discussed at the local Merseytravel customer forums. There was one held locally last Friday hosted by Merseytravel with our representative also in attendance to respond to questions. ^BW

The Solo's used for that 175 service must be going to be used elsewhere in the Arriva empire.

So will the extra 487 in the timetable be pulled or will it now become a normal single decker as its run on work will no longer be there .
