Bus company starts ‘early bird’ service aimed at Liverpool nurses

  • Comment

Staff at three of Liverpool’s biggest hospitals are to benefit from a new early morning bus service launched by Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire.

The 204 bus route, which runs between Belle Vale and Liverpool city centre, will operate seven days a week with services starting from 6am on Monday to Friday.

“We understand there is an ever-increasing demand for early morning services especially among nurses”

Rob Jones

Stagecoach said the “improved route” would call at Liverpool’s Women’s Hospital, Alder Hey and Broadgreen Hospital.

Combined, the three hospitals employ over 11,000 people, from doctors and nurses to administrative staff, the firm noted.

It said the buses on the 204 route would run roughly every 30 minutes until 8pm Monday to Friday, allowing employees working shifts to get to and from work “with ease”.

Rob Jones, managing director for Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said: “The 204 bus is a vital service that connects passengers with some of Liverpool’s biggest hospitals.

“We understand there is an ever-increasing demand for early morning services, especially among nurses who rely on public transport to get to and from work,” said Mr Jones.

He said: “This new route will help alleviate any issues that staff face commuting while also improving on its former service by adding contactless payment methods and, in the near future, free Wi-Fi on board.

“We continue to listen to passenger feedback to ensure we are offering our customers an affordable and reliable service,” he added.
