Full details: History:Rivington

In Spring 2017, Transport Focus calculated a 100% satisfaction score for the northbound services and 95% for the southbound services. This meant the northbound side was one of the country's top two.

The services were then completely rebuilt and reverted to its previous name, with the new southbound side opening on 27 May 2011. The Subway outlet here is Halal and is open 24 hours. The toilet facilities are placed in the Spar store with no signage within the rest of the service area.

The services have two bridge crossings: one footbridge and one driving bridge, neither of which serve as a Rear Access (except as a public footpath).

The current Rivington services is unrecognisable from the place it replaced, Bolton West services.
