Bus and coach companies that operate in Warrington

Travel information

You can get travel information and departures times by visiting Traveline or by using the Moovit apps on your phone.

Our bus stops

We have invested in a real time passenger information (RTPI) system which monitors the exact location of most of the buses in Warrington, giving you a reliable countdown time at your bus stop.

We look after bus stops, bus shelters and the information in them. Please let us know if there is a problem such as damage or vandalism (especially if there is broken glass), or if the real-time display is not working.

We also put notices in stops closed by roadworks or add notices to service changes.

Warrington Bus Interchange

We own and manage the Bus Interchange which is near to Warrington Central Rail Station in the town centre.

Opening hours

  • 5am to 11.30pm Monday to Saturdays
  • 9am-6pm Sundays and Bank Holidays

Access to the interchange outside these times is through a night gate by the Winwick Street entrance.

National Bus Strategy

The government recently launched Bus Back Better, a National Bus Strategy for England. The national strategy gave us two options for future improvements in bus service provision - either establishing an enhanced partnership with all operators or committing to franchising. Given these options, it's considered that the enhanced partnership is the best option for Warrington. In June 2021, we confirmed with the government our intent to pursue this option.

Our Bus Service Improvement Plan

In accordance with the requirements of the National Bus Strategy we have now published our Bus Service Improvement Plan, which details how we intend to enhance our bus services and infrastructure to increase patronage and includes a request to the Department for Transport for additional funding.


Enhanced partnerships

We made our Enhanced Partnership Plan and Scheme on 1 July 2022. You can read our Enhanced Partnership Plan (effective 1 July 2022) and Enhanced Partnership Scheme (effective 1 July 2022) in full.

Zero-Emission Buses

In May 2021 we applied for ZEBRA (Zero Emission Bus Regional Area) funding to Government with a proposal for a fleet of electric buses in Warrington. We then successfully progressed to the second round of this competitive application process and were required to submit a full business case in August 2021.

On 26th October as part of the Autumn Budget and Spending Review 2021 the government announced that the bid had been successful. Further updates will be provided as the project progresses.
