    Information about the service


    The W Series bus service to the North Wales, Chester and Ellesmere Port areas has been running successfully since 2008.

    Carvers Coaches currently operate this route using luxury coaches. The coaches are fitted with seat belts and have CCTV installed which is routinely recorded for the safety and security of students and drivers. All drivers are required to hold a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

    The timetables for each bus will vary and it is very important that students travel on the bus for which they hold a valid pass. Students will not be permitted to travel if they do not produce a valid pass.

     

    Route


    The route is operated using luxury coaches.

    The timetable operates every day during term time. Bus numbers, routes and timings are calculated each year, based on the number of passengers who have purchased a pass at each stop. The W1 bus will service passengers from North Wales and will stop at St. Asaph and Caerwys. 

    Bus stops are situated in North Wales at St. Asaph and Caerwys and St. David's Park (Ewloe). Stops servicing the Chester area are located at The Holiday Inn (A483/A55), Sainsbury's (Caldy Valley Road) The Piper (A41/Hoole Lane), Morrisons (Upton). Spar (Bache), Mollington (off A540) Saughall (off A540). In Ellesmere Port, stops can be found at The BP Strawberry Garage (A5117) the Old Wirral Hundred pub, (A41/Capenhurst Lane) and Little Sutton (Chester Road/Smithy Lane).

    The timetable for 2018/19 will be uploaded when it is prepared.
