A company has stepped in to provide a bus service between Nantwich and Leighton Hospital which faced the axe by an operator next month.
Following our recent information bulletin about changes to bus services in the borough, Mikro Coaches has come forward to register a replacement 78 service between Nantwich and Leighton Hospital/Coppenhall.
The current 78 service is not subsidised by the council and current operator D&G Buses has decided there were too few passengers to make the 78 service economically viable. The replacement 78 is also a commercial bus service, not subsidised by the council, and the continuation of the route will depend on passengers using the service.
The new 78 service will start on Monday 23 July 2018, with the D&G service ending the previous Friday (20 July). The new 78 service will have a different timetable (see inset) but the route will remain the same as the current 78.
Further details of the new 78 service and upcoming changes can be viewed on the council’s website at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/bustimetables
