City Travel in Liverpool

City Travel in Liverpool Liverpool has a wealth of public transport on offer to make your journey in, out and around the city centre an easy and pleasant experience.

For starters there is the City Sightseeing Bus Tour, an open top double decker providing a hop on-hop off service, stopping at many of Liverpool’s top attractions.

If you’re heading to or from one the many towns and villages surrounding the city centre then there is a good, reliable bus service on offer. The two principal bus operators are Arriva North West and CMT Buses, and there are a number of bus stops in the city centre including Paradise Street Bus Station, Queen Square Bus Station and on Victoria Street.

Football fans are also in luck as the Soccerbus service runs direct to Goodison Park [map] and Anfield on match days so you can leave your car at home. The service runs for two hours before each match, departing from Sandshills Station to the Liverpool and Everton stadiums, and back to Sandhills Station for 50 minutes after the final whistle. For further details about this service or other buses that go to Anfield or Goodison Park call 0151 330 1066.

If you fancy trying out a different way of travelling, try the Mersey Ferries River Explorer Cruise, which has a direct crossing from the Wirral to Liverpool. The ferries operate hourly seven days a week and the journey takes around 10 minutes between Seacombe on the Wirral and the Pier Head in Liverpool

For those of you on a sightseeing tour, the River Mersey has a rich and varied history, and the ferry service itself is more than 850 years old. So you can learn a bit about Liverpool’s history, see all the major landmarks and enjoy a different way of travelling. More details about the ferry service are available at www.merseyferries.co.uk

If you’d rather get around by taxi then there is a good range of private hire cabs and a hackney cab service in operation in Liverpool city centre.

There are Hackney Cab ranks at Lime Street Station, James Street Station, the Adelphi Hotel, Whitechapel, Sir Thomas Street and Chinatown. But you can also hail black cabs passing by.
