Hospital shuttle bus

Information and timetable on our free shuttle bus services between the hospitals.

We operate a regular free shuttle bus service, seven days a week between Warrington Hospital and Halton General Hospital. 

It also makes a drop off at the Captain Sir Tom Moore Building on the Halton General campus.
The bus runs seven days a week. Please note, at the weekends the bus stops only at the Captain Sir Tom Moore Building on the Halton General Campus.

The popular service helps over 500 people a week get to their appointments free of charge - as well as providing transport for staff between the sites. People visiting relatives in hospital can also use the bus. Our bus has full wheelchair and disabled access.

You may be asked to show evidence that you are travelling for a hospital appointment or visit.

The shuttle bus runs from outside the main entrance (Entrance 1) on Hospital Way at The Nightingale Building from Monday – Friday.

At weekends and bank holidays the shuttle bus runs from Entrance 2, which is situated at the rear of The Nightingale Building near to Runcorn Urgent Treatment Centre.

A couple of minutes after departing from either bus stop at The Nightingale Building, it then makes a stop at the Captain Sir Tom Moore Building (apart from the 6.35am departure).

We would recommend you being at the Captain Sir Tom Moore Building the same time as the departure time for the Nightingale Building entrance, as it will only take the bus a minute or two to arrive there, depending on the number of people alighting and boarding.

The journey takes around 25 minutes between sites, but this can be delayed due to traffic. Please be aware that the bus can be busy - visiting times.

Patients and visitors boarding the bus may be asked for the purpose of their journey that day, please show the top of your clinic letter to the driver. If you are visiting a patient please ask on the ward for a confirmation slip for your return journey. We unfortunately have to ask due to an increase in users of the bus using it as free transportation to and from Warrington/Halton without using Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust services.
