From the Merseytravel site...
Impera Buses, who ran bus services throughout the Wirral area and some cross-river buses to and from Liverpool, have stopped running their bus services.
Since we were told on 3 October, we've been working with other bus companies to arrange replacement bus services for most of Impera's withdrawn bus services.
(Details updated at 09:00 on Friday 4 October.)
Impera ran the following services without any subsidy. Here's what's happening to them:
31 Liverpool - New Brighton - not replaced
31A Liverpool - New Brighton
Part of Route 31A has been replaced by new evening Merseytravel Route 411.
39 West Kirby - New Brighton - not replaced
39C Calday Grammar School - New Brighton
Avon Buses are running the morning and afternoon trip on Route 39C until 11 October. We'll let you know if this service continues after this date nearer the time.
98 Liverpool - Town Meadow - not replaced
We've now arranged for all these Merseytravel contracted services to be run by other bus companies. The routes and the times have all remain unchanged:
107 Town Meadow - New Brighton is now being run by Arriva
