Christmas Day service success

Published on 24/01/2013
Merseytravel’s Christmas Day services have once again proved a hit with passengers.
 
Passengers on the free services were asked to complete a questionnaire to provide Merseytravel with accurate information about their journeys and to help gauge the service for future years.
 
From those who used the Christmas Day services and responded to the questionnaire, 51% were visiting friends and family, with 14% making hospital visits, 8% of respondents used the service to get to work and the remaining 27% of people used the service for church services, cemetery visits and generally travelling around the area.
 
Councillor Liam Robinson, Chair of Merseytravel said, “The Christmas Day services are vital for many people without access to a car and what’s been interesting from the feedback is the number of people who use the service every year to visit friends and family, as well as those who use it to visit loved ones in hospital.”
 
Buses operated a limited service on Christmas Day covering routes serving Alder Hey, Arrowe Park, Broadgreen, Clatterbridge, Fazakerley, Liverpool Women’s, Royal Liverpool, Southport and Whiston Hospitals.
