Cycling and walking
The pandemic has brought about some big changes in the way people are travelling in and around Warrington, with more people than ever choosing to walk or cycle.

Buses in Warrington
The latest stage of the national roadmap means that more passengers can travel on bus services. The government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as in bus interchanges, at busy bus stops and while travelling on buses. More information about how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus can be viewed on the government's website.
We continue to work closely with our bus operators to provide the safest environment possible. Service levels have been restored to a level which is very close to before the pandemic began.
Please email the passenger transport team with details of any concerns that you have, so we can look into any issues.
You can find more information about the public bus services with:
If you need to travel, and are aged 11 and over, we are encouraging you to wear a face covering (unless you aren't able to do so). Please follow the national guidance and try to keep your distance from other people if possible. If you have hand sanitiser please take it with you on your journey.
We also ask that you use cash alternatives to travel wherever possible. This could mean paying via the Touch and Go app or contactless card (now available on the majority of bus services).
The opening hours of the bus interchange have been extended since the majority of bus services have resumed.
The bus interchange is open:
- 5am - 11.30pm, Monday to Saturday
- 9am - 6pm on Sundays and Public Holidays
Access for the services that depart outside of these times is available via the bus interchange ‘night gate’. This gate is accessible from Winwick Street, near Stand 1.
