Warrington’s own buses, the new name for Network Warrington, has got its claws stuck into Lymm and south Warrington making wholesale improvements to the network.
The introduction of the ‘Cheshire Cat’, a newly branded network servicing the south of the borough, has come into effect and offers a high frequency service, up to every 10 minutes, across a simplified and better-connected network.
These transformational changes have also seen the introduction of a new cutting-edge bus fleet. The Cheshire Cat branded buses include the latest transport essentials, including Wi-Fi, extra leg room, luxury seats and USB charging points.
The Cheshire Cat network now also passes past Warrington Bank Quay station and Centre Park. Bank Quay Station is an important gateway to the town and until the Cheshire Cat did not have a regular bus service to and from the interchange.
Managing Director of Warrington’s Own Buses, Ben Wakerley, said: I’m pleased that we’re making big improvements to the south network that will hopefully have our customers purring. These are truly buses to be seen on!
“Feedback from our customers about the new bus fleet and simplified route has been really encouraging so far.”
“We are committed to investing in a high-quality transport network that provides an excellent service for as many residents as possible, and we’re pleased to see how well the new Cheshire Cat fleet has been received.”
“We aren’t resting on our laurels. The company is going through some big changes ñ the Cheshire Cat and our rebrand being two major milestones ñ and we will continue to work hard to improve our service in all areas of Warrington.”
