Undoubtedly you will have seen in the local press this week that there is the potential for Arriva drivers to go on indefinite strike from Monday 8th November 2021. Whilst the operator is making every effort to avoid this, given we are now getting closer to the potential strike date we want to ensure we can make as many people aware of this.
If the strike goes ahead it will significantly reduce the number of buses operating within the Liverpool City Region and place additional pressure on other existing public transport services. As such we would ask you to share this information with pupils and parents and advise them they may need to consider alternative travel options where possible, should the strike take place. We advise customers to monitor local news and check for updates from Arriva via their website and social media platforms.
