It’s seemed like an age, but after months, years and centuries of moaning, the city finally has a bus stop in the Baltic Triangle.
Merseytravel has popped in place a shiny new stop, right next to the skatepark on Jamaica Street (just up from Unit 51, near Camp and Furnace).
The new CityLink service connects up the city centre in a way that reflects how the city’s shaped now, which includes the rather buzzing Baltic. And, being a circular route, it means we can get on at any point on its journey around town and not have to worry about being taken to god-knows-where (ie St Helens). It sticks primarily to key streets and points: the Pier Head, Liverpool ONE, Hope Street, Mount Pleasant are all included.
Running every 12 minutes – roughly 8am til 8pm – it’s definitely not the thing to rely on if you’re having a late night out at that side of town. But for daytime and early evening mooching, it’s a nice (and fairly speedy it seems, taking around half an hour to do the full circular) new addition. We’re looking forward to seeing how this one goes.
