Good News for Warrington’s Own Buses

New routes are being introduced and the electric fleet is coming soon!

The X5 to Manchester Airport from Warrington (via Lymm & Altrincham) is as popular as ever, with the ticket costing just £2.

The first bus from Warrington Interchange is 5.08am and it runs throughout the day.
