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.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU to everyone who supported our Open Day at Burscough on 9th July. The sun shone down on us, and hundreds of visitors had a very enjoyable day. Thank you also to the visiting bus owners, stall-holders and everyone who worked hard to make this event one of our most successful ever!

Lots of people have posted their photographs of the event on our Facebook page (link button at the top of this page) and there is even some drone footage of the runway parking area!

This summer is going to be very busy for the Merseyside Transport Trust; details of our next events are shown below, and some other activities are listed on the "Events" page of this website.
