Saturday 12pm UPDATE –

Warrington’s Own Buses have made some minor changes to the 62 service. Please see the updated timetable below.

Students holding any Halton bus passes will be able to use them on the 62 and 62a services. We would ask students to keep hold of any unused Halton passes.

We will be holding a meeting with students who use the 62 services on Monday at 9am in P1.16. We will be asking for their feedback and providing the latest information, including our plans to agree revised ticketing and pricing arrangements.

At this time we have no further information, but will keep people informed of any further updates via the website.

We will text students if there are any further significant updates.

We are still awaiting confirmation of arrangements for students who use the Halton Borough Transport bus routes to college. As soon as we have the details we will update this page and this might take place over the weekend if no further information is available today. We will keep students informed of the latest developments via text over the weekend.

 

Friday morning –

We are aiming to provide a comprehensive update on the situation regarding Halton Borough Transport at 3pm today.

If there are any students in college today who are worried about getting home because some buses on their routes are not running please report to Student Services by 3pm so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.

Any current Halton passes will be valid for use next week on any Warrington’s Own Bus services that will operate on the 62 route.

There will be a bus operating on the 62 route on Monday starting at Ditton, Baguley Avenue arriving in Stockton Heath for 8.41 and a return journey leaving Wilderspool Causeway at approximately 16.12  This will follow the normal 62 route at those times.

We are awaiting confirmation of other times on this route.

We will be holding a meeting with students using Halton Services on Monday at 9am in P1.16 to get direct feedback on the situation and to explain what we are doing to support them at this time.

 

 

 

If you have any queries or concerns about buses heading to Priestley College – both in terms of times and prices – please go to Warrington’s Own Buses or call them on 01925 634296.

 

This year if a student signs up for an annual pass they will need to pay just £36 a month (this is done by opting to pay the £432* annual pass on a monthly basis). Students with the annual pass will be able to use it on all Warrington’s Own Bus services throughout the year.

In the morning there will be journeys where students will not have to change at the bus interchange but they will need to do this for the return journey. Warrington’s Own Buses have assured us they will monitor this situation and revise arrangements if necessary.

As ever, students who face financial difficulty will be able to apply for the full cost to be covered by the Bursary schemes. Where the routes are £1 per journey students will not be able to use their college pass on other Warrington’s Own Bus services and will need to pay additional costs as has always been the case on those routes.

  • £460 from October 2019
