Talking about the changes, Howard Farrall, managing director Arriva Merseyside, said: “At Arriva we are constantly striving to offer our passengers the best possible service, and this includes the route options as well as the buses themselves, however this sometimes means that prices have to change to reflect this. Where possible we have kept fares the same and we hope that our passengers enjoy exploring more of their local area with the saver tickets.”
