Representing the interests of Wirral's transport users since 1985

What we do

The Wirral Transport Users Association (Wirral TUA) exists to represent Rail, Bus and Ferry users across the Wirral, Merseyside and West Cheshire area. Our main aim is to promote modern integrated and accessible public transport systems across the region. It acts as a pressure group in various consultative meetings being affiliated with Railfuture, transportfocus, Travelwatch North West, bususers and the Campaign for Better Transport.

We keep our members up to date on public transport developments with our newsletter published once or twice a year. Each AGM includes a briefing on the significant developments of the past year and any proposed future developments and also has a talk about a transport-related matter from a representative from the industry. We run coach excursions to places of transport interest once or twice a year.

We support:

        Better co-ordination of transport modes across Wirral and beyond.

        Promotion of sustainable public transport services locally.

        Improving access to public transport across the area including campaigning for new railway stations at Ledsham, Town Meadow, Beechwood Estate, Woodchurch Road (bridge), Little Neston/Ness Gardens.

For photos and movies of our past trips and a summary of our AGMs, see Past Trips and Events. For details of our next AGM and planned trips, see Future Events. Any outstanding developments in public transport in our area will be notified in the News page. Our past newsletters are accessible from the Newsletters page (the latest newsletter is posted directly to our members and will not be available on the website for six months). A list of other Transport User groups is given on the Local Transport Groups page. A short history of the railways in Cheshire is given in History of Rlwys in Cheshire. A statement of the Association's aims as formalised in its Constitution is given in Our Aims.

The more members we have, the more pressure we can exert on the transport providers. To join, see the Applic Form page. Members receive notification of trips, the AGM agenda and the Newsletter(s). They have priority over non-members for places on trips, (if they reply within a few days of notification). Should you join the Association, your involvement can be as much or little as you wish. If you have any skills related to committee work or public transport and want to get involved, you would be more than welcome to join our committee (which meets once a month except for two summer months).
