 Sefton Bus Review

Residents in Sefton have helped shape the borough’s bus network following a consultation on plans to create a simpler, clearer network.
Plans for Sefton include:- 
  • Improved link between Maghull and Aintree University Hospital
  • Improved evenings & Sundays provision linking South & East Maghull to Maghull Station
  • Evenings & Sundays service introduced on service 58
  • Evenings & Sundays service introduced on service 144
  • Evenings & Sundays service introduced on service 159
  • Extended hours of operation of service 300 between Liverpool & Lydiate and 310 between Liverpool & Maghull
  • 300 & 310 timetable better co-ordinated in Maghull
  • Service 43 in Southport renumbered 46A. No change to route or frequency.
The changes will come into effect on Sunday 23rd April 2017.
A full list of the changes, along with details of alternative and new provision for any affected routes, can be found in the PDF below:
Sefton is the latest area, following Kirkby and St Helens, to be reviewed as part of a wider review of the whole Liverpool City Region bus network which began last year. Reviews of Wirral and Liverpool are currently taking place, with the rest of Knowsley will follow.
This is one of the activities that come under the Bus Alliance, a formal partnership with operators Arriva and Stagecoach, with the aim of transforming bus services to encourage more people to take the bus. The network reviews do involve all operators though.
Part of the review has been looking at the current supported bus network and considering how increasingly limited public resources can be focused where there is most need.
Impacts of changes have been mitigated by re-routing or extending existing commercial services where possible to negate the need for a service supported by public funding. Some original proposals have been updated based on feedback from the consultation.
