Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire introduces free Wi-Fi for Wirral passengers

16 Feb 2017

Wirral Wi-FiStagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire has introduced free Wi-Fi on all its buses across the Wirral. 

The changes to the fleet mean passengers can stay connected even when they’re on the move, with free Wi-Fi services fitted into each bus. 

Passengers crossing the Mersey will also benefit from the upgrades and customers will be able to access the free Wi-Fi easily by selecting ‘Stagecoach Wi-Fi’, which will take them to a page where they will be asked to enter their details. 

Stagecoach is continuously updating and upgrading its buses across Merseyside and South Lancashire to maximise comfort for passengers. 

The Wirral Wi-Fi initiative follows popular service upgrades that took place in Liverpool last year, where Stagecoach introduced a fleet of 32 luxury buses with Wi-Fi across a number of popular routes. These include the 82 and 86 routes traveling through Liverpool, Wavertree, Aigburth and Garston, in addition to the 14 route which travels through Liverpool, Anfield and Croxteth. The luxury buses are fitted with large leather seats and specially tinted windows for temperature and light control, and include high-speed Wi-Fi and USB electronic charging points. 

Rob Jones, managing director of Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said: “We’re so pleased to announce that all our buses that travel across the Wirral are now fitted with free high-speed Wi-Fi. We recognise that our passengers want to stay up-to-date and connected even when travelling, so this is an exciting time for passengers on the Wirral. 

“It’s no secret that we quickly becoming a ‘smart phone generation’, so the addition of free Wi-Fi could transform bus journeys for our passengers. It might give commuters a chance to catch up on emails before their busy day begins or even provide an opportunity for passengers to switch off by catching up on their favourite TV show. 

“Our high-spec vehicles offer comfort as well as good value for money and we continuously develop our service to ensure we remain in tune with what our passengers want.”
