School Transport Update: 720 Stagecoach service

Friday 24th January 2020 - We have just received the following statement from Merseytravel in connection with the 720 Halton Transport services to and from school:

Halton Transport have ceased to operate bus services. Merseytravel has secured emergency provision and school services previously operated by Halton Transport on behalf of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority will now be operated by Stagecoach from Monday 27th January 2020.

This is an interim measure whilst we secure more long term provision. We would ask schools, pupils and parents to work with us during this transition period as there may be some initial teething problems. We would ask you to share this with pupils and parents so they know replacement services are available.
