Bus operator Arriva Wales has announced a series of alterations to its routes impacting locally.

The company cites changes in the Welsh Government’s post-pandemic support to bus services as the primary driver behind these revisions.

Several routes in the Chester and Mold area have seen tweaks to improve punctuality, particularly during peak hours, and to better cater to the current demand patterns:

  • Service 1: Chester to Wrexham now includes additional timings during peak hours, and will also feature a stop at Hoole Way post the Chester Railway Station.
  • Service 1/1A: Chester to Blacon has been rebranded as Service 14/14A. However, commuters will be relieved to find no changes in the route or timings.
  • Service 3: Broughton to Chester will now operate every 60 minutes from Monday to Friday. Some early morning and late evening trips have been withdrawn and replaced, affecting the connectivity from Broughton to Chester Railway Station.
  • Service 4: Mold to Chester has been restructured to enhance on-time performance, especially during the rush hours. Notably, some trips have been replaced, and the Sunday departures from Chester Railway Station have been re-timed for better coordination with Service 11.
  • Service 5: Mold to Ellesmere Port aims to bolster punctuality by revising its route during school days, notably impacting stops on Chester Road and omitting the Campus car park.
