Some services on the bus network are part of a Quality Partnership between Merseytravel, the bus operators and the local councils. On these “Quality Bus Network” services, bus operators coordinate timetables to deliver a frequent turn-up and-go service. It also doesn’t matter which operator’s ticket you have, you can use it on any bus on the route.

For details of which tickets are accepted on each service, contact the service operators. The full range of Merseytravel Solo, Trio, Saveaway, MyTicket and free travel passes are accepted on all buses as usual.
