Arriva 300 Liverpool – Southport via Lydiate Route

An Arriva 300 bus at the Meadows bus stop, Maghull.

A recent conversation with a Maghull resident made me aware that there are concerns that weekday afternoon 300 Arriva buses are not necessarily reliable and it made me think. Think because I have previously heard concerns being raised about the unreliability of the 300 bus on weekday afternoons. Is this a common issue? I’d like to hear from any users of the route, so please get in touch.

Coincidentally, I’ve also picked up a copy of a recent report from Mike Perkins of OPSTA (Ormskirk, Preston and Southport Travellers Association) on the sate of bus services in and around Southport and he also makes mention of the 300 route. This is what he says:-

I understand that Mike was previously involved in managing some local bus services so he’ll know what he is talking about and I thought his comments on the 300 route were worth sharing.

    Hi, the 345 bus service it totally unreliable and not frequent enough . Once it turns at the Old Roan it is the only bus service to Melling. It’s a long walk to the station. I have a complaint logged at the moment with Merseytravel about this service and wait to hear their reply I am no longer willing to do nothing about this and will be trying to contact my MP about the horrendous transport links we have in Aintree.

    • Thanks, Lisa, it’s clear that the 345 is at least just as problematic if not more so. We supposedly have a Bus Alliance on Merseyside these days and Merseytravel, Stage Coach and Arriva are all parties to it. If some of our bus routes are so unreliable what point in the Alliance?
