 Future bus service changes


On this page, you'll find details of confirmed future bus service changes.

As soon as a bus operator tells us they are changing a service and the change has been agreed by The Traffic Commissioner, or when we are changing a Merseytravel supported bus service, we'll list it on this page.

We've listed all the changes in date order, so scroll down the list to see if your service is changing.
