Withdrawal of Arriva service 2

Start Date: 04/09/2016

Location: Liverpool to Chester

Joint-ticketing arrangement will also cease on routes 1 and 2.

Arriva regrets it is to withdraw its service 2 from the Quality Bus Network between Liverpool and Chester (services 1 and 2) with effect from 4 September 2016.

As a result, the joint-ticketing arrangement will also cease on these routes, and Arriva tickets and passes will no longer be accepted on the Stagecoach buses on these routes.

There will be a number of customers who will be affected by this ticketing change and will have to purchase different tickets, or a combination of tickets which will cost them more. This will differ greatly depending on where they currently travel to/from and in particular whether they travel through the Merseyside / Cheshire boundary at Hooton. We have tried to cover all of the key scenarios.

Stagecoach will be providing a revised timetable on service 2 which is designed to replace our journeys. More details of this can be found by contacting Stagecoach. Their website is
