Simon O’Brien is an award-winning actor, TV presenter and lifelong advocate of active travel who was appointed Liverpool City Region’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner in 2019. Simon’s role is to provide help and expert advice to Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and the Combined Authority on achieving the goal of making the city region the best place to walk and cycle in the country.
Walking and cycling are just as important elements of the wider Liverpool City Region transport network as buses, trains or our Mersey Ferries. That’s why there’s millions of pounds being invested to make our transport hubs as accessible as possible by active travel. Cycle to your nearest Merseyrail station and use the newly upgraded storage facilities available across the network, take your bike across the river on our ferry services or walk from our centrally located bus stations to your destination.Find out more
