Merseytravel is once again offering free bus services on Christmas Day, to help people make hospital visits or to spend time with their friends and family.
Buses will operate a limited service from around 12 noon until around 6pm on routes serving hospitals across Merseyside.
Councillor Liam Robinson, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Transport Portfolio Holder, said: “We are one of a very few areas that operate services on Christmas Day, which can be a lifeline for people who would otherwise not be able to see their loved ones in hospital on this very special day.
“Although these services are provided primarily for hospital visiting, anyone who can use them to visit friends and family along the routes is very welcome to do so.”
