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 grouped all the changes by area and listed them in date, then numerical order, so scroll down the list to see if your service is changing.
