Transformed Bus Network will be the Cat's Whiskers


Network Warrington is getting its claws stuck into south Warrington and will be making wholesale improvements to the network.


The introduction of the “Cheshire Cat”, a newly branded network that will service the south of Warrington, will come into effect later this year.


The proposed changes will see buses in the south network simplified, improved and will also see the introduction of a new, cutting-edge bus fleet.


The Cheshire Cat branded buses will include the latest transport essentials, including WiFi, skylights, extra leg room, comfy seats and USB charging points.


Managing Director of Network Warrington, Ben Wakerley, said: “I’m pleased that we’re making big improvements to the south network that will hopefully have our customers purring.  These are truly buses to be seen on! 


“This latest round of improvements follow our Dallam discount, hospital frequency increase, Pops network and ‘£1.70 to Westy’ initiatives, and I can’t wait to unveil this further improvement.


“We will be introducing 13 new vehicles onto the Cheshire Cat network to ensure that our fleet remains modern, fit for purpose and achieves improvements for the environment.” 


Cllr Ian Marks, Lymm North & Thelwall, was pleased about the prospect of network improvements, adding: “I’m looking forward to seeing the positive changes delivered by Network Warrington and the proposed routing, giving better connections.”


The full improvements and changes to the south network will be announced next month, with a public roadshow on Wednesday 28 February 2018 at Sandy Lane community centre at Stockton Heath. The roadshow will give residents the chance to comment on the south Warrington service changes before they are officially confirmed.
