Bus boost news

Earlier this year I organised a petition about the 80 and 80a bus services. 

The issue was that in the evenings and on Sundays, the service wasn't very frequent and actually only gave people the option of going to the airport (when some people wanted to go to other bits of Speke like Morrisons)

I went to see Arriva managers about it.  As someone who uses the bus service all the time I know just how annoying the Sunday service has been.

Anyway, the good news is that we now have more frequent evening service (every 20 mins instead of every half hour) both in the evenings and on a Sunday AND the route has been extended so that when the 80 is not running, the 80a will go on to parts of Speke after the airport.  It will finish up at Morrisons.

I hope this will make a difference to those many people who raised this with me.  I used the new service myself the other day and it really did make getting around the Brodie Avenue a lot easier.

Big thanks to those who signed the petition and who raised the issue with me in the first place.
