Cheshire East Council is advising residents of new revised bus timetables following the decision by Arriva North West to no longer operate services in the borough.
Arriva North West has confirmed that it will close its Winsford and Macclesfield depots on 22 April andwill no longer operate any bus services in the Crewe, Macclesfield, Winsford and Northwich areas.
New commercial bus routes have been registered by other bus operators as part of their own networks, and new timetables will come into effect from Sunday 23 April.
Most local bus routes have been covered by alternative commercial routes. However, there are a number of changes to bus services in Cheshire East and full details can be found at: cheshireeast.gov.uk/busservicechanges
Passengers are reminded that tickets are not generally transferrable between bus operators and are advised to contact the operators direct for more information.
All council contract changes, which cover a limited number of late evening and weekend services, have been managed within the authority’s existing budget.
The council will continue to monitor the bus network closely, and further updates will be provided at: cheshireeast.gov.uk/busservicechanges
Passengers may be able to use one of the community and flexible transport services or the Go-Too on-demand bus service for travel to Nantwich and in the adjacent rural areas.
