There are two ways in which service changes are consulted on. One of these is through Network Reviews - regular reviews of district networks which take place roughly every six months. On average each district is reviewed every three years. A key part of these network reviews is the consultation process that helps develop the final network with valued input from stakeholders, bus users and the wider public. However, while these reviews look 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, through the network review process, Stagecoach, Arriva and Merseytravel have recognised the value of consultation and have pledged to consult in advance on any significant changes to 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.
