Community roadshow – come and meet bus and rail operators

Bus and rail operators will be offering advice and information and answering questions about public transport at a community roadshow on Friday 7 October (10am – 12 noon) at St David’s Church Friday Cafe, Rocky Lane.

The Friday Café at St David’s was set up using some of the Mayoral Neighbourhood Fund allocation for local Councilors Liz Parsons, Frank Hont and Jeremy Wolfson, and has run successfully for more than three years, including  a monthly community event on the first Friday of each month.

Representatives from Arriva, Merseyrail, Northern Rail and Merseytravel will be at the Roadshow.

Councillor Wolfson, who is a member of the Merseytravel Committee, said: “We know there is a lot of interest in public transport, as so many people rely on it. The last roadshow we held attracted more than 80 residents.

“It is an opportunity for those people who use buses or trains to question the operators on matters of concern and for the people responsible for running the services to provide up-to-date information and advice.”

Customer roadshows are a good opportunity for people in the local community to talk to the operators about transport issues that affect them and for the operators to give travel advice and up to date information on local issues
