arriva 84 bus

Two comments we received about yesterday's article on Arriva Buses

Julie — "I've emailed Arriva 3 times since March about this — no response! The 82 and the 84 now depart Tarvin High St at the exact same time each hour every hour, 38 mins past.. And in the meantime my daughter is late for school (in Chester) almost every day now that they have changed the time of the one single bus that got her there in time!"

Sue Hardacre — "To make matters worse, the last time I was in Chester a couple of weeks ago I found that the 84 leaves from outside Boots as it used to do but the 82 was still leaving from the 'temporary' bus stop beyond Argos.
To be fair to Arriva, this absurd timetable only affects passengers in Tarvin and stops up to Vicar's Cross. It will be interesting to see if Tarvin and Littleton can make enough noise to make changes.
It seems only yesterday that we reveled in a bus every 15 minutes!"

Ed: Don't think we would have this situation if there were competing bus companies on the two routes!

    I made a formal complaint to CWaC in March 2017. My complaint was that the public transport from Tarvin isn't good enough for a village which is designated a Key Service Centre in Cheshire West. I also complained that It is impossible to get back to Tarvin by public transport from the new Storyhouse performances in Chester on 5 evenings of the week. I had to chase a reply to my complaint and then was told by a CWaC Officer in Planning and Strategic Transport that public transport timetabling was a commercial decision in the hands of Arriva. I have asked for my complaint to be kept open and also commented on the absurd recent timetabling changes which have resulted in the 84 and 82 buses sometimes arriving in Tarvin in convoy. I have had no further response from CWaC.
