Cheshire West and Chester Council (CW&C) would like your thoughts to help with the planning of an innovative new bus service. In addition to the current bus services operating along regular routes at specific times, imagine being able to book a bus journey, to a local destination of your choice, that will pick you up at, or near, your home, at a time convenient for your needs. Such journeys may be to places of work, to get you out for leisure and recreation, or to the cinema and other evening activities.
CW&C would like to design their flexible bus service to help offer you these opportunities. Your journeys will be booked using an app (a non-electronic booking facility will also be provided) and you will receive live real time information so you will know exactly when the bus will arrive as well as much more information. By using this service, you will have an important role of supporting your community and hopefully also reducing the environmental and congestion impacts of local travel by car and enjoying new lifestyle benefits.
CW&C’s proposal is for the service to be available in the areas of Helsby, Frodsham and the surrounding rural communities areas including: by Kingsley, Commonside, Crowton, Acton Bridge, Norley, Hatchmere, Flaxmere, Delamere, Manley, Mouldsworth, Alvanley, Hapsford, Ince & Elton, Ashton Hayes, Sutton Weaver, Aston and Dutton. The service could offer links to the surrounding urban areas of Ellesmere Port, Cheshire Oaks, Chester, Runcorn and Warrington making use of train and other bus services.
