Late night bus and train services for festive season

Arriva, Stagecoach and Merseyrail will be running late night buses and trains this festive season to help you get home easily.

Night buses will be running on the four weekends before Christmas on selected routes and late trains will be running a limited service to Hooton and Southport on the two weekends before Christmas.

Merseytravel Committee Chair Councillor Liam Robinson, said: “Late night services are back for the third year running and by working together we can give people more choice when it comes to travelling around the city region during the festive season. We are encouraging people to plan their journey, have options and check not only travel but weather updates too before heading out.”
