After February half term the number 49 bus will pick up at some stops slightly earlier of a morning.
This is in response to increased traffic on the route which is causing the bus to arrive at College late.
This will be in place for the remainder of the academic year.

49 Morning pick-up time changes:

Burtonwood, Gorsey lane 07:52
Winwick, St Oswald’s Church 08.00
Winwick Rd, Cromwell Avenue 08.07
Winwick Road McDonalds 08.13
Warrington General Hospital 08.20
Great Sankey School 08.28
Penketh, Meeting Lane 08.32
Widnes Rd, Warrington Rd 08.37
Derby Rd, Moorfield Rd 08.41
Cronton Sixth Form College 08.45
Riverside College, Kingsway 08.55

Hopefully this will improve the service and your journey to College.
