Warrington’s Own Buses to hold West Warrington Roadshow
Warrington’s Own Buses will be giving customers the chance to have their say on improvements for the bus network in the west of the town.
A special public roadshow will take place on Thursday 2 August, 2pm-6pm at Meeting Lane Community Centre, Penketh. It follows the company’s successful public consultation event for the Cheshire Cat network held earlier this year.
The bus routes under consideration are the 13, 14, 15 and 32A, which cover areas including Chapelford, Great Sankey and Penketh.
Managing Director Ben Wakerley said: “We want to hear from customers who travel in and around the west of the borough as we look to revamp this section of our network. We want to know what we should carry on doing, stop doing or start doing. It’s essentially carte blanche – no decisions have been made on route improvements, which is why it’s important we hear from our passengers and potential bus users to make sure any changes made are in our passengers’ interests. I think it’s equally important we reach out to residents who don’t use the bus network. I want to find out how we can support them to leave their cars in the garage more often and travel using public transport, to help alleviate traffic and contribute to a greener, cleaner borough. I want to reassure passengers that the primary focus of this consultation is not to look at cancelling routes, but to find ways we can better connect the west of the town with the rest of the borough. We look forward to speaking to residents at the event.”
No registration for the event on Thursday 2 August is necessary and residents are encouraged to turn up at a time convenient to them. Residents can catch the 32A bus to Meeting Lane from the Interchange.
