I’m disappointed that sudden changes to local bus timetables are set to hit local residents and commuters with reduced services.
This news came without proper warning or adequate consultation of our community.
Of particular concern is the the impact this will have on older people in some of our rural areas and villages, who rely on the bus.
I’m working hard with leaders and officials at St Helens Council to press for urgent assurances from Merseytravel, Liverpool City Region and operators to secure the future of these services, and to ensure they are restored as quickly as possible for those who need them.
