 Quality Bus Network

​Quality Bus Network

Some services on the bus network are now part of a Quality Partnership between Merseytravel, the bus operators and the local councils.
Services are more frequent which means you won’t have to wait as long
for your bus and it doesn’t matter which
operator’s ticket you have, you can use it
on any bus on the route.

For details of which tickets are accepted on each service, contact the service operator (Arriva, Halton Transport or Stagecoach). The full range of Merseytravel Solo, Trio, Saveaway, MyTicket and free travel passes are accepted on all buses as usual.
