 St Helens Bus Network Review 2019

St Helens Bus Network Review (2019)

Residents in St Helens have helped shape the borough’s bus network following our first round of consultation for the 2018 St Helens Network Review. You can find the outcome of the first review and our responses to the issues raised in the PDF below: 

Plans for St Helens include:
  • Current links and frequencies maintained on the majority of daytime and evening services
  • Improved links to St Helens Hospital from Garswood and Haydock with revised service 156
  • Service 603 replaced by an extended 22 service via Garswood and Haydock Industrial Estate to Ashton. This will provide better links to Newton Community Hospital and Warrington for the east of St Helens
  • New service 39 replacing withdrawn service 140 between St Helens and St Helens Junction
  • Renumbering of Merseytravel evening 140 journey to 39A

The changes will come into effect on Sunday 28th April 2019. 

A full list of the changes, with corresponding maps, can be found in the PDF documents below:
