The Merseyside Transport Trust


Welcome to the website of the Merseyside Transport Trust!

The MTT's collection of former Liverpool Corporation Buses, ranging from one of the first post war AECs right
though to the last bus delivered to the Corporation in 1969, is probably the country's most representative
preserved collection from a municipal bus fleet.

The collection also includes a growing number of buses from the Merseyside Passenger Transport Executive (MPTE) fleet which operated most of the bus services on Merseyside between December 1969 and October 1986 and the MPTE's successors Merseybus, MTL and Arriva. In addition to these, we also have a couple of former Crosville Motor Services buses, Crosville being at one time a large operator on Merseyside.
