PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Liverpool has 3 main transport systems: buses, trains and ferries. However majority of the citizens use cars because public transport isn't always reliable. The traffic situation isn’t as bad as in other cities.

 

If you are flying into Liverpool, your first concern probably would be how to get to your destination from the airport. From John Lennon airport you have 2 options: bus or taxi.

Please click here for more information on how to get from the airport to Liverpool city centre by bus.

Liverpool city centre is easily accessible by foot. However if you're going to be staying here for a few days, you may want to buy a Walrus Card that will enable you to use any type of public transport as many times as you want while your pass is valid.

Another option is Saveaway ticket – one-day, off pick ticket for buses, trains and Mersey Ferries.

BUSES

In Liverpool we have 2 major bus providers: Arriva and Stagecoach. We have 2 Arriva buses which operate 24hrs, bus 86 and 86A (click here for information) and Stagecoach Gold Night to Chester 1 every Friday and Saturday (click here for more information).

The simplest and sometimes most convenient way to travel is to purchase a single or return ticket directly from the driver on any bus service. Another option is to get your Trio, Solo, Walrus Card in Queen Square Liverpool city centre or Liverpool ONE Travel Centre (click here to see ticket prices and click here to see full list of travel centres).

One thing you may notice unfortunately in a buses there is no information about stops, therefore please check you destination on your smartphone or ask driver aboutwhere you need to get off the bus.
