THE town’s bus company Network Warrington says it has had no choice but to withdraw some services due to falling passenger numbers.
The company will be withdrawing services affecting the Lingley Mere, Westbrook, Chapelford and Stockton Heath areas of the town from September 5.
Managing Director Damian Graham said: “We met with members last night to give them a short presentation and explain the reasons for the forthcoming changes to our bus services, which commence on Monday 5 September 2016.
“The changes will see some routes being reinforced with additional journeys added due to high demand and some routes retimed to offer a co-ordinated timetable to provide a more balanced frequency of services.
“Unfortunately, due to falling patronage, Services 29A/C will be withdrawn, together with poorly used sections of Services 10C and 13.
“However, alternative Network Warrington services are available in the area.
“We would like to assure our customers that all the changes have been analysed through the data provided by the on-bus ticket machine and reflect the high and low periods of demand for our services.
“The company, through its Board and the Executive Directors, must ensure that we remain sustainable for the foreseeable future by constantly reviewing our network.
“As usual, publicity will be made available 2/3 weeks prior to the changes commencing.”
The affected routes will be 10C Fairfield Road, Stockton Heath, 13 parts of Chapelford /Westbrook and 29A/C, Lingley Mere/Westbrook/Chapelford.
