What we do
The Wirral Transport Users Association believes in 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 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. It also has a talk from a representative from the transport
industry. We run coach excursions for trips on preserved railways and to places
of transport interest once or twice a year.
We support campaigns for:
A half hourly service
on the Wrexham Central – Bidston railway line and also the electrification of
New railway stations at
Ledsham, Town Meadow, Beechwood Estate, Woodchurch Road (bridge), Little
Neston/Ness Gardens, Deeside Industrial Estate and Thornton.
between Ellesmere Port and Helsby.

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
Transport Groups page.
JOIN US TODAY! - The more members we have, the more pressure we can
exert on the transport providers. To join, see the Application
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).
