September 2019 Service Changes
On 2nd and 30th September, Warrington’s Own Buses will be making changes to a number of services. These changes are as a result of customer feedback, our own observations and new business. The changes to our network are as a result of some new contracts and removal of financial support provided over a number of years to help develop a service. These changes help ensure that we can deliver a service that is safe, sustainable and reliable. A number of these changes will deliver improvements for customers through improved reliability and frequency, while others will offer a service proportionate to demand.
We’re currently working hard to finalise all our publicity information which will include maps and timetables and these will be available to download from our website soon with printed copies will follow.

The first journey on service 9 will operate 20 minutes later than current times. The revised journey will leave Warrington at 06:32 arriving in Northwich at 07:23 and the return will leave Northwich at 07:28 and arrive in Warrington at 08:30.
The service 6 that departed Warrington at 07:35 and Grappenhall East View will now depart 20 minutes earlier. An additional journey operates at 07:35 as far as Stockton Heath Victoria Square to improve the frequency of journeys to Stockton Heath.

As part of simplifying our network, service 1E will be renumbered to 1 for the outbound part of the journey and 2 for the return to town. This is so that our evening service route numbers match the daytime route numbers.
As a result of the end of financial support for service 10 it is no longer viable to continue to operate this service every 30 minutes and as a result, we have had to take the difficult decision to retime the service to hourly during off-peak periods and on Saturdays. On Monday to Friday peak journeys will operate every 30 minutes and off-peak journeys will be retimed to hourly. On Saturdays the service will be retimed from every 30 minutes to hourly all day.
Service 4A is renumbered to service 4.
Service 32 will be retimed to every 20 minutes throughout Saturdays to better match customer demand.
