Take Merseyside's Buses Back Under Public Control
Dear Mayor & Council Leaders,
Please take our buses back into public control.
The People of Merseyside
Why is this important?
Our bus services are broken. But they could be world-class.
The Liverpool City Region Metro Mayor has the power to fix our buses by bringing them back into public control.
Right now, private bus companies do what they like, dictating prices, routes, and timetables.
You’ve seen the results: catastrophic cuts, skyrocketing fares, and buses that never turn up on time.
It’s not just a bad deal for passengers — drivers are overworked and underpaid, leaving the bus companies struggling to run a reliable service as staff shortages bite.
No wonder our drivers are sometimes forced to go on strike!
Public control would mean affordable fares and more frequent buses. All with a smart ticket where daily spending is capped. And why not? It’s what they have in London!
It would also put staff pay and conditions in public control, delivering a better deal for drivers and more reliable buses for you.
Local politicians are there to represent YOU! Let them know you think buses should be in public control.
