Managing director for Stagecoach Merseyside, Cheshire and South Lancashire Rob Jones said: “We know many people will be relying on our services to get them from A to B over the festive period.

“This year, we’re running a selection of popular routes on Boxing Day to help our passengers get out and about, spend time with family and friends, and grab a bargain without the hassle of driving in our busy town centres.

“Christmas is a busy time of year and we’d advise all passengers to follow us on Twitter before travelling and keep up-to-date with live service updates.”
