Sefton Bus Review – What about the inadequate 236 route?

I have posted about this rather worrying review a number of times. My last posting is available via the link below:-

But one thing I missed out of my own submission to the review is the situation with regard to the 236 route. I knew about it but it slipped my mind when I was talking to the Merseytravel people at Maghull Square during their consultation tour of the Borough.

The Merseytravel bus routes consultation event recently held in Maghull.

The issue is this. The 236 needs to run during weekday evenings and Sunday daytime to enable the visiting of patients (from the Maghull, Lydiate, Melling area) at Fazakerley Hospital, as not everyone in Maghull has a car and taxis are not cheap! It’s also the case that the 236 is not run on a clockface timetable so it is difficult to know when it is running without having access to a timetable.

I have now made these points to Merseytravel and hope they will take them on board as they conduct their review of bus services across the Borough of Sefton.

Once again my thanks to Kevin for his help with this posting.
