Bring back the night buses campaign has been launched

Following various consultations with music venues across the city region, the Liverpool City Region Music Board is on a mission to bring back Late-Night Bus routes, a lifeline to the city region’s nighttime economy.

To help build the business case for reinstating the night bus routes discontinued during the lockdowns, like the N86 and Tunnel Bus, LCR Music Board is urging people from across the city region to complete a 60-second survey.

Bring back the night buses campaign has been launched

The ‘Bring back night buses’ campaign, coordinated in partnership with University of Liverpool and Liverpool Nightlife CIC, evolved following consultation events and discussions with music venues operating across the city region. Most venue representatives agreed that limited late night transport was key reason behind their reduced footfall and ticket sales, as well as their struggles to recruit and retain evening staff.

Board member and Lecturer in Music Industries, Dr Mat Flynn, said: 

“We want to reintroduce night buses that will provide convenient, safe and affordable links to local music venues. We already have the insight and support from venues, and this survey will now help us better understand the needs of the end users; like the gig-goers, and venue staff.”

Liverpool’s Nighttime Economy Advisor, John Hughes, added: 

“Late night bus services are critical to Liverpool’s night time economy; ensuring that people have a cheaper way to safely travel home from the city centre, especially the 1000s of staff who work so hard to make our city one of the best places to enjoy a night out.”
