 Future bus service changes

 

On this page, you'll find details of confirmed future bus service changes.

As soon as a bus operator tells us they are changing a service and the change has been agreed by The Traffic Commissioner, or when we are changing a Merseytravel supported bus service, we'll list it on this page.

We've listed all the changes in date order, so scroll down the list to see if your service is changing.

If you'd like a printed copy of the new timetable sent to you in the post, please email us at publicity@merseytravel.gov.uk.
