Council welcomes change to key City Centre bus service

LIVERPOOL City Council has welcomed the decision to change a key City Centre bus service. Arriva Northwest and Stagecoach will begin a revised 82 bus route, on Monday, 22 January 2018, which will see a return to the original service.

The announcement follows months of discussions with the City Council which had been inundated with complaints from the public over a change to the service last September, as it no longer dropped passengers off near to the retail core of the City Centre.

The new service, the 82C, will serve the old Lewis's building via Renshaw Street and terminate at:- Great Charlotte Street, near St Johns Shopping Centre and Market, 4 times an hour, 9am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday.

Councillor Steve Munby, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Transport, had led the negotiations with the bus companies for the service, which begins in Speke, to revert back to its original route.  Councillor Munby said:- "I'm delighted Arriva Northwest and Stagecoach have listened to all those passengers who had been deeply affected by the change to the 82 bus service. This is a critical bus route connecting many communities in the south of the City with the City Centre and the changes had made it very difficult for elderly passengers in how they shopped and very inconvenient for many workers getting in on time.This is great result for all those who campaigned for the return of the original route who will see it as a win for common sense. The new route still remains as well so it's been a pragmatic compromise which will ensure passengers get the best of both worlds."

The 82 and 82D service, which was introduced last year, will continue to serve the Baltic Triangle and Dale Street respectively.

Passengers are advised that due to the introduction of the 82C service, the timings of the 82 Service may vary from the current timetable.
