Liverpool Lime Street is the main train station and is in the city centre.
It covers both intercity and local lines and provides national coverage throughout the country.
Local buses are operated by Stagecoach Merseyside and Arriva North West. They both provide local city services and regional services throughout Merseyside.
National Express also stops at the bus station, providing opportunities to take a coach further afield should you need to.
