There’s a new bus service to get you from the heart of Huyton to the doorsteps of two key leisure facilities.
The 249 is a circular service that goes from and to Huyton bus station via Knowsley Leisure and Culture Park (KLCP) and the OurPlace young people’s centre.
It is an evening and weekend service and the route includes:
Lathom Road, Huyton Lane, Longview Drive, Hall Lane, Huyton Hey Road, Wilson Road, Manor Farm Road, St Johns Road, Tarbock Road, Archway Road and Poplar Bank.
It will make it a lot easier to get to KLCP and OurPlace and help those who work in the evenings at Huyton Business Park or who want to get to Huyton town centre and Huyton station.
The OurPlace centre is for young people aged 11 to 19 years or up to age 25 for people with extra needs.
It also has a Spa with a sauna, steam room, salt inhalation room and Jacuzzi, a Coffee shop and café, shows and events and children’s birthday parties.
On Mondays to Fridays, the 249 leaves Huyton bus station at 6.25pm, reaches KLCP and OurPlace 5 minutes later and then heads back to the bus station.
Throughout the evening, it runs at 5, 25 and 45 minutes past the hour, until the last bus leaves the bus station at 10.25pm.
On Saturdays, it runs from 6.25 pm until 7.25pm, at 5, 25 and 45 minutes past the hour.
On Sundays, the first bus leaves Huyton bus station at 8.25am and at 5, 25 and 45 minutes past the hour until the last bus leaves the bus station at 9.25pm, returning at 9.42pm.
Knowsley Council worked with Merseytravel to develop the new route which has been funded by the Department for Transport’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund.
