Consulting on Service Changes

As part of the Liverpool City Region Bus Strategy, Merseytravel, working with bus operators, is carrying out a regular cycle of reviews of bus services, supported and commercial, in each district, with the aim of getting more people using the bus by creating a better bus experience.

A key part of those network reviews is the consultation process that helps develop the final network with valued input from stakeholders, bus users and the wider public.  

While these reviews have looked at the all services across each district, there are occasions where operators may look to make changes to their commercial services on a route-by-route basis, as well as any changes to individual supported routes outside of the network review process. 

As part of the Liverpool City Region Bus Alliance, Stagecoach and Arriva have recognised the value of consultation and have pledged to consult in advance on any significant changes to their commercial services, where possible.  

In the Merseyside Region, operators have committed to limit changes to four key dates, where possible, throughout the year to stabilise the network and build confidence in bus services. In advance of these dates, consultation on any proposed changes will take place to help inform operators and Merseytravel of the potential impact they will have.


Proposed withdrawal of night journeys on 1 service  ( Liverpool & Chester)

The consultation period is now closed and Stagecoach will consider the feedback given.  Any changes to the service will be implemented on 28th April 2019. These changes will be advertised on this page, on bus, on stop and via social media.


Proposed changes to the 3/3A (Huyton Industrial Estate - Halewood - John Lennon Airport) service

The consultation period is now closed and the Bus Team are now considering the feedback. Any changes to the service will be implemented on 28 April 2019. These changes will be advertised on this page, on bus, on stop and via social media.


Proposed changes to the 211 (Speke Circulars) service

The consultation period is now closed and the Bus Team are now considering the feedback. Any changes to the service will be implemented on 28 April 2019. These changes will be advertised on this page, on bus, on stop and via social med​ia.


Proposed changes to the 121 and 214/215

Merseytravel have sought feedback on the changes to the 121,214 & 215. These changes are proposed as the services have suffered with punctuality problems for some time, with the timetable being revised on two previous occasions to try and address the issues. Unfortunately the service is still struggling to keep to time, due mainly to the length of the route and the congestion that is experienced in areas that it serves.
