From Monday 2nd February 2015 there will be changes to how the Monday to Friday daytime Garston Circular services, routes 166, 188, 266 & 288 operate.
The routes are split into separate smaller sections, so buses no longer operate as complete circulars.
Buses either run as a Belle Vale to Halewood service or a Halewood to Belle Vale service – you can’t make a through journey via Halewood. Service are also rerouted so only peak time buses now serve Okell Drive; no buses serve Long Lane, Greenhill Road, Heath Road or the top part of Springwood Avenue; and no Monday to Friday buses now serve Springwood Cemetery. The times are changed.
(Buses run for Merseytravel during the evenings and weekends are unchanged.)
