What we do
The Wirral Transport Users Association exists to promote
modern public transport systems for the Wirral, Merseyside and West Cheshire
area. The WTUA has a watching brief over the Rail, Bus and Ferry operations in
the Wirral and its transport connections to the rest of the country. It acts as
a pressure group and represents the transport interests of the travelling
public in the local area- it has representation on the Merseyside Integrated
Transport Forum and is affiliated with Railfuture, Passenger
Focus, Travelwatch North West, Bus Users UK and the Campaign
for Better Transport.
We keep our members up to date on public transport developments with our
newsletter published once or twice a year. The annual AGM includes a briefing
on the significant developments of the past year and proposed future
developments and also has a talk from a representative from the transport
industry. We run coach excursions to places of transport interest once or twice
We support campaigns for:
- A half hourly
service on the Wrexham Central – Bidston railway line and also the
electrification of the line.
- New railway
stations at Ledsham, Town Meadow, Beechwood Estate, Woodchurch Road
(bridge), Little Neston/Ness Gardens, Deeside Industrial Estate.
- More bus/rail
and car/rail interchanges.
For photos and movies of our past trips and a summary of our AGMs, see Past Events.
For details of our next AGM and planned trips, see Future Events.
Any outstanding developments in public transport in our area will be notified
in the News
page. Our newsletters are accessible from the Newsletters
page. A list of other Transport User groups is given on the Local Groups
page. A short history of the railways in Cheshire is given in History
of Rlwys in Cheshire. A statement of the Association’s aims as formalised
in its Constitution is given in Our Aims.
JOIN US TODAY! - The more members we have, the more
pressure we can exert on the transport providers. To join, see
the Applic Form page. Members receive
notification of trips, the AGM agenda and the Newsletter. They also have
priority over non-members for places on trips, (if they reply within a few days
of notification). Should you join the Association, your involvement
can be as much or little as you wish. If you have any skills related to
committee work or public transport and want to get involved, you would be more
than welcome to join our committee (which meets once a month).
