What is the Quality Bus Network?
The Quality Bus Network is working towards making buses easier for you to catch in Merseyside. Merseytravel with Knowsley, Liverpool, St. Helens, Sefton and Wirral councils are working with the bus operators to create quality partnerships to make bus travel more convenient and quicker for you.
What does it mean for my journey?
The Quality Bus Network is making improvements across many areas:
- Buses will be more regular during the day, so you don’t have to wait as long.
- Improved facilities at bus stops, such as better information and improved access.
- Drivers can accept daily and weekly tickets from other bus companies on routes that form part of the Networks.
- Merseytravel will work in partnership with the local councils to make improvements to the highways.
