Through the Local Transport Act (2008) Merseytravel has assumed responsibility for implementing the third Local Transport Plan (LTP) for Merseyside. This means that we are the body that is accountable to the people of Merseyside and Central Government for achieving the LTP's goals and objectives up until 2024. Our responsibilities include delivering these outcomes though the creation of effective partnerships and sub-regional governance structures that reflect the dynamics of Merseyside.
We continue to meet these requirements by coordinating the activity of the Merseyside Transport Partnership (MTP) and by ensuring that our work is aligned with the six underlying goals of the LTP. The links below provide further information and detail on how we are delivering these goals, managing major schemes and developing travel solutions that continue to contribute to the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of Merseyside.
