Lib Dems demand explanation about bus service

Woolton's Lib Dem Team is demanding an explanation from Merseytravel after news that the 173 and 174 bus services won't run next week (beginning 11 July).

The company that ran the two services has had its contract stopped early because of its poor record.  But Merseytravel says the new company can't start until 18th July, leaving people reliant on the service with no bus for a week.

Says Lib Dem Malcolm Kelly " We can't understand why this action is being taken hastily at the eleventh hour without an immediae replacement.  Our area has many elderly residents who depend heavily on local buses for essential travel"

The Lib Dem Team in Woolton is delivering a special leaflet across the area affected by the bus cancellations to let as many local people as possible know not to wait at a bus stop in vain next week.

Information about the services is available at
