Buses are the backbone of our local transport network – half a million people across the Liverpool City Region, which includes Halton and St Helens, use the bus every day to travel to work, to school, to the doctors, to visit friends and family, or to have a day out.
The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, which covers the six local authority areas of the city region, including Halton and St Helens, has new powers to improve bus services by taking greater public control of the network.
YOUR BUSINESS IS OUR BUSINESS
Our vision is for a fairer, stronger, cleaner city region where no one is left behind. To support the vision, we are taking active steps to harness the power of our communities and diversify our network.
The Liverpool City Region is world-renowned for delivering cutting-edge approaches to complex challenges, particularly in health and wellbeing.
At present, our region has a few big problems at hand – challenges that cannot be solved by one sector alone.

This provides a unique creative opportunity.
