 Sefton Bus Network Review 2019

Sefton Bus Network Review 2019

Residents in Sefton have helped shape the borough’s bus network following our first round of consultation for the 2019 Sefton Network Review. You can find the outcome of the first review and our responses to the issues raised in the PDF below: 

Plans for Sefton include:
• Current links and frequencies maintained on the majority of daytime and evening services
• Services 44, 47 and 54 have route amendments to improve reliability. 
• Cumfybus are consulting on two options for services 15/15A. This would see the service cover more of Southport, including Walnut Street and Folkestone Road in Kew. It would also give better links from across Southport to Southport Hospital. 
• Service 46A is withdrawn. Frequency of service 46 is increased to every 20 minutes, Monday to Saturday daytime. 
• New service 32A introduced to offer a peak service for South and West Maghull to Maghull Station and Westway Square. Service 32/33 hours extended to run of an evening and Sunday
• Peak service 34/34A withdrawn due to low usage following the opening of Maghull North station
• Service 144 to operate between Bootle and Pendle Drive only, to improve reliability
These proposed changes are due to come into effect on Sunday 1st September 2019. A full list of the changes, with corresponding maps, can be in the PDF found below:
