Just incase you were unaware; some of the Arriva Services in the City Centre have been altered. If you use services that serve Bootle and Walton and/or served Stands 10, 11 & 12 in Queen Square, You will now have to use the top two stops in Sir Thomas Street.
This is in conjunction with the opening of Liverpool 1.
This only affects Arriva Services, Stagecoach and HTL still use Queen Square.
Those of you who live in South Liverpool will be chuffed to know Hanover Street is due to re-open with services starting/ending at Paradise Street Bus Station.
For full Bus Service information, take a look at this PDF Merseytravel Document
Personally, the previous set up was more ideal. No doubt Stagecoach will profit on the 53 route as I doubt people will be prepared to walk to Sir Thomas Street to wait at a stand which isn't even sheltered...thats if your unlucky. It is a poor show that buses which once served three spacious stands in QS now have to use two layovers in Sir Thomas Street.
Cross River Services now operate from two stands rather than three. I would hate to be a commuter in the City Centre with this current set up!
