Service Changes in response to Covid-19 Pandemic
With effect from Monday 23rd March 2020, Warrington’s Own Buses will be making changes to a number of services. These changes are as a result of the steep decline in passenger numbers that have been seen over the last 7 days due to Covid-19 pandemic. Regrettably these changes are necessary to ensure that we can continue to deliver a service that is sustainable, reliable and proportionate and enables us to continue to trade throughout the duration of the pandemic.
We will be operating a reduced Saturday service on all days of the week with additional journeys in the morning to enable our customers who use our services to travel to and from work to continue to do so.
