Now you know which bus stop and route service you need, follow these 3 simple steps for boarding:
∙ Arrive 5 minutes before your bus is due to arrive. We recommend this as timetables are only approximate and can sometimes be affected by traffic and other factors.
∙ When your bus approaches, clearly signal the driver by waving.
∙ If required, ask the driver if it is possible to lower the bus.
Wheelchairs and prams are permitted onboard all Merseylink buses. Safety is always our number one priority, so when boarding please follow our driver’s instructions. When using these aids, we ask that you please keep them stationed in the designated area, facing toward the rear of the bus with the safety breaks applied.
Your luggage is your responsibility. If your luggage is too large to be on your lap or next to your feet, place the item in the luggage area provided. If your luggage is too big or could be dangerous onboard, we may not be able to carry it – ask our driver if you are unsure.
Safety for all Merseylink employees, passengers, and visitors is our top priority. We are committed to ensuring each person is treated with dignity and respect and without the worry of harassment or discrimination.
