Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire has partnered with Everton Football Club to promote its direct bus service between Liverpool city centre and Goodison Park for the 2018/19 season.

The new-look 919 service will operate on match days from St John’s Lane, opposite Lime Street Station in Liverpool city centre.

The first bus departs two hours before kick-off and then at frequent intervals to ensure arrival at the ground ahead of the start of the match.

After the game, buses will be departing from Walton Lane, opposite the Everton club shop, 10 minutes after the final whistle.

This season, Stagecoach has increased the number of buses operating on the 919 service.

Every Everton season ticket holder can travel for free for the first home Premier League game of the 2018/19 season against Southampton by simply showing their season ticket card to the driver.

Managing Director for Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, Rob Jones, said: “We look forward to working with Everton Football Club throughout the season and welcoming thousands of Evertonians on our buses across the year.”

Mark Rollings, Head of Partnerships at Everton, said: “We look forward to working alongside Stagecoach in promoting their services including the 919 bus.

“This is a great initiative for supporters which will provide a safe, reliable and trustworthy way for Blues to come to the match.

“Supporters from all over the world come to Goodison Park and this non-stop service from Liverpool City Centre offers fans an affordable transport option.”
