    MP Rosie Cooper has hit out at Arriva following their decision to reroute the 375 bus service away from Grimshaw Lane, Ormskirk.

    Concerned residents have contacted her, worried over the changes with the current route serving the Grimshaw Lane area well, including passengers from Whittle Drive and the Scott Estate.

    Arriva consulted on the proposed changes with three local County Councillors but failed to communicate with the MP, local Borough Councillors and residents.

    Rosie Cooper MP has called on Arriva to carry out further consultation and research before arriving at a final decision on whether changes are needed or not.

    Yesterday, she told QLocal: "Understandably, residents in the area are concerned at the extra walking distance to their nearest service, particularly many elderly passengers who take the 375 to Southport and Ormskirk Hospitals.

    “Upon raising this issue with Arriva, because residents were told by the bus driver that the bus won’t be running any more, I find out that their consultation process involved a total of one email to three County Councillors - none of whom live in the area affected!

    “Arriva need to rethink the changes and consult with the passengers and local residents first before going ahead with any final decisions.”
