The 272 service was threatened with closure but has been saved through a subsidy by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The new service will operate to a revised timetable providing journeys every 90 minutes in each direction. The revised service will now pick up at Brook Street in Neston and observe the same route as at present, through Willaston, to Little Sutton Red Lion. From there, peak hour journeys will operate via the A41 and Sutton Way, and remaining daytime journeys will operate via the A41, Ascot Drive, Seacombe Drive and Loxdale Drive on its way to Ellesmere Port bus station.
Thank you to everyone who signed petitions, wrote letters and otherwise campaigned on this issue.

McCarthy and Stone has lodged a planning application to build 35 retirement living apartments on the grounds of the former Royal British Legion site in Willaston (ref 18/01252/FUL).
The Society have raised a number of issues in the response and are objecting to it, particularly on the grounds of the size and scale of the building, the number of parking places (32 are proposed, which we consider inadequate) and the difficulties of using the current entrance/exit. A full version of the response can be seen here: Royal British Legion Site – WRCS Comments
