Christmas Day Bus Usage

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Merseytravel,
Please can I ask for the following details for all Christmas Day bus routes.

1. How many people used each trip and where passengers boarded
1a. In 2019
1b. In 2020

2. The cost of running each route on Christmas Day (cost per trip preferred but I presume that would be discounted due to commercial sensitivity)
2a. for 2019
2b. for 2020

Yours faithfully,

Mark Smith

Dear Mr Smith

RSN21564

Thank you for your recent request made under the Freedom of Information Act. Please find attached a spreadsheet containing the information requested.

The figures for 2020 are understandably lower given that passengers were asked to follow travel advice on our website (https://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/customer...) to reflect the extra safety measures that were in place to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. Government guidance to stay home is also likely to have affected personal decisions on travelling. This was expected, but the decision was made to continue to provide these services due to the importance of the journeys that were still necessary for frontline workers and those visiting and caring for vulnerable family members.

I trust that this information is of interest to you.
