Currently, no bus service exists between Winsford and Northwich in the evenings. To deal with this, CWAC has awarded a service to Arriva North West to run such a service from 7th April onwards.
The service will operate initially for 12 months with the aim of making it commercially viable.
The service itself will run on Friday and Saturday evenings only and will consist of four journeys in each direction.
The first of these buses will leave Winsford at approximately 6.45pm and the last bus will return from Northwich at 11.15pm.
Fares will consist of £2.50 return; £4.00 ‘duo’ tickets for couples; and a £6.00 ‘family’ ticket for two adults and up to three children.
The service will pick up at Mount Pleasant; Over St Johns; Grange Estate; Winsford High Street; and Wharton Road and will operate non-stop to Leftwich (London Road) and onto terminate at Northwich Watling Street.
The service broadly covers cinema times and is being marketed jointly between CWAC and Arriva North West.
Winsford Town Mayor Cllr Steve Smith said “this is a great development for Winsford and will allow many more people to have a night out in neighbouring towns, and will also allow more people to come to Winsford from elsewhere”.
The service will operate on Good Friday – 14th April 2017.
