    St Helens Bus Review April 2019

    I will post this here as Relevant to the above, Today i noticed on VOSA that Hattons have cancelled their 140 St Helens - Bold Heath from 21st January 2019 PC1144732/11 CancelledHATTONS TRANSPORT LTDRoute: St. Helens, Bickerstaffe Street to Bold Heath/Lingley Green via Clock Face, St. Helens JunctionService number: 140 ()Service type: Hail & Ride, Normal StoppingEffective date: 21 Jan 2019 After doing some asking around i was made aware of a Tender that has gone out to replace the Hattons 140 however the start date of it is 28/04/19 (The same date as the St Helens Bus Review) Meaning there would be no Service between 21st Jan and 28th April 2019. Also out for tender is a number 39 between St Helens Town Centre and St Helens Junction Railway Station going via Ashtons Green Drive and Baxters Lane. There is 2 Separate Tenders for this (Only one of which will be awarded), One with a Monday - Saturday Service between 07:45 and 17:45, The 2nd Tender includes and Evening and Sunday Tender operating until 22:45. Start date for this is also the 28/04/19 Full Details for the above can be found here: https://procontract.due-north.com/Advert?advertId=6be4b31e-7df9-e811-80ef-005056b64545&p=e0cc5631-4690-e511-80fb-000c29c9ba21

    Both sides of Hattons makes money, The Coach side for example bought out another operator only a couple of years ago (Ashcrofts?). The Bus Side has recently gained another contract all the way in Bootle

    St Helens Bus Review April 2019

    The 137 was cut back to run Billinge - St Helens only as at the last Bus review it was deemed to costy to keep it going to Prescot, The 139 (Now 289) Replaced it through Nutgrove, Hattons did win the tender for the 139 but when it came up again HTL won it, The fact Hattons did not take it on commercially says it all about the route as Hattons have a reputation to operate a Service commercially where possible. The 152 Passenger numbers are actually increasing at a good rate and gets busy around Edge Hill Uni Start/Finish times The only routes the Tax Payer pays for is them that dont get busy so therefore could not operate without the funding Passenger numbers for said tenders can be found at the following link: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/tender_passenger_number_figures?nocache=incoming-1252760#incoming-1252760

    They cant just swap Buses between peak and off peak as that would mean having a lot of Buses sat in a depot for hours doing nothing, The 137 is best as a tender now as if it could work commercially Hattons would have done it as they have a reputation of making Tenders they win into Commercial Services

    Merseytravel have uploaded their Document for Bus Services over the Xmas Period, Couple of things to note: Xmas Day: 194/195 Services have been numbered H2 and H3 this year, Seems operating Withdrawn routes once a year was not confusing enough.. The 10X will be numbered the 10A this year Boxing Day and New Years Day: Unlike past years the 35 St Helens - Gillars Green is not operating this year Rainford will have a Bus Service this year in form of the 38A operated by HTL Buses. routes in St Helens that are operating is: 10A St Helens - Liverpool (Arriva & Stagecoach) 17 St Helens - Widnes (HTL Buses) 31 St Helens - Parr (Arriva) 32 Clinkham Wood - Sutton Manor (Arriva) 34 St Helens - Newton-Le-Willows (Arriva) 38A St Helens - Rainford (HTL Buses) 89 St Helens - Liverpool Airport (Arriva) 320 St Helens - Ashton In Makerfield (Arriva) There could be a couple of other minor changes which i will notice when i get chance to read it in great detail https://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/travel-updates/Documents/Xmas booklet 2018 for WEB.pdf?fbclid=IwAR0GpJdK7llFplSzjYotj7hU6kwYYXyxuMarmDHIU7EPySrVJZRgtgl_fRE

    There is nothing wrong with the 10 and 10A as they currently are now Deckers operate for both operators The 137 is currently operated by HTL Buses as they put in the lowest bid I believe Rainford will be getting a half hourly 38 again some point next year, one was cut back due to works at Windle Island, Also Rainford has a Boxing Day Bus this year (38A) for the first time

    St Helens Bus Review April 2019

    I missed your comments about the 10/10A, In recent years 2 Buses and hour has been taken off the 10 and 2 Buses an hour has been taken off the 10A (1 for each company). The 10 and 10A are high frequency routes as they do get very busy, more so between Prescot and Liverpool, They also get very busy at peak times due to a high number of students using the services and the number of Hospitals on/Near the route. This review is not looking at them 2 routes anyway its looking at the routes that get funding because not enough people use them to make it commercially viable such as the 137 to Billinge you mention, That route is protected now until January 2022 and depending on what happens with the 111 it could get an extra morning trip

(Eve/Sun) Full Information can be found at the following link. https://procontract.due-north.com/Advert?advertId=0e9d7848-edeb-e811-80ef-005056b64545&p=e0cc5631-4690-e511-80fb-000c29c9ba21&fbclid=IwAR0N2DuJf6aLvB87TiKwEhOZNSa8gYCChhdg4qEzdox2ESOQDKMK_VIOES8

    139 Bus Service Prescot to Liverpool

    The new Timetable looks like its been made by Peter pan, 58 Mins running time there and back is Fantasy and will run mega late, the 139 currently has 37 Mins running time to go just about the same route in 1 direction, No doubt there will be a change again in the near future.

    139 Bus Service Prescot to Liverpool

    Who says i have been involved in the *Moaning* I have just been keeping a close eye on how things have gone. Anyway this Afternoon Cumfybus have posted some Times on Facebook (Photos of the Drivers running boards) It confirms what i said about it missing Huyton Bus Station and the poor timings Timetable -

    139 Bus Service Prescot to Liverpool

    As people may know this Service is due to be withdrawn on 3rd September and there had been a petition to save this route, There will now be a partial replacement numbered the 239. This service will run from the Big Tesco in Prescot to Broad Green Hospital. Not seen a timetable yet but apparently it will be missing out Huyton Bus Station and the running time is is to low so chances are it will be a *Turn up whenever* Service.. I will make another post when the Timetable is published (Service will be operated by Cumfybus)

    Deer in St.Helens

    Save making a new Feed Roe Deer populations in St Helens seem to be growing with sightings of them in Rainhill, Haydock and Sutton Manor this Summer, most likely more easy to spot with them mating in July and Aug.
