District-focused Bus Network Reviews are carried out every three years across Merseyside and are coordinated by Merseytravel. These reviews are to consider the commercial bus network and the supported network as a whole, reviewing how the network best reflects current working and living patterns and new developments and how they are served.

Part of the review process considers the need for services publically subsidised through Merseytravel, ensuring how very limited public resources can be focused where there is the greatest need. Details on the reviews of each district will appear on this page as and when they take place. You will be able to find out details of the changes proposed to the bus network in each region and give your feedback via an online survey.

A consultation process involving members of the public and key stakeholders, which sees a number of drop-in events and an online survey, helps to shape the reviews. If you are unable to attend the events and give your views on the bus services in your area or would like to ask any questions about the reviews, you can contact our comments team through the Merseytravel website by emailing ask@merseytravel.gov.uk or by telephone 0151 330 1000.

The reviews tries to make sure that everyone living in a built-up area is within reasonable distance of a bus service which connects them to healthcare, fresh food, healthcare and the rest of the transport network.
