Bus services into Liverpool City Centre are changing

Liverpool City Centre is currently undergoing significant improvements as part of Phase One of Liverpool City Council’s City Centre Connectivity Scheme. It aims to make the city a cleaner, greener, more attractive place where walking and cycling are more viable choices to get around with reduced car and bus traffic. This will be achieved by improving the public realm and changing how traffic moves through the city.

One of the consequences of this scheme is that many of the bus services which travel to and from Liverpool (including those travelling from various parts of Knowsley) may have their routes into and out of the City changed from January 2020. In some cases, road alterations which have already commenced may result in similar changes.

Bus services will generally split into north/south termination and starting points, with Queen Square and Liverpool ONE bus stations, and the areas around them, the main alighting and boarding points. For those who need it, a free, cross-city bus shuttle will run every six minutes between Queen Square and Liverpool ONE bus stations, with stops at key locations.

KOPV have produced a document summarising how each of the bus routes serving Kirkby, Huyton, Prescot/Whiston, Halewood, and Stockbridge Village will be affected – click here
