Building Businesses... And Bus Shelters

Thanks to grant funding received from the Department for Transport’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund, Merseytravel’s Smarter Choices team, The Women’s Organisation is pleased to unveil the installation of a bus shelter outside our building 54 St James Street in heart of the The Batlic Triangle area.

The Mersey Travel  Employer Small Infrastructure Grant 2013 is a grant scheme aimed at improving the sustainable transport infrastructure at workplaces across the Liverpool. Through a successful grant application, The Women’s Organisation has secured sufficient funds from the Employer Small Infrastructure Grant 2013 to support the installation of a fully lit, cantilever bus shelter at the existing bus stop directly opposite to our building at 54 St James Street.

The Women’s Organisation Operations Manager Lynn Kelly said, “Given the large number of women accessing our building at 54 St James Street, having an illuminated bus shelter will improve comfort and safety for users and impact positively on the attractiveness of the use of public transport as an option.”

The Bus Shelter will facilitate an increase in use of the available bus service and support sustainable travel cross all company activities and for the wider community within the Baltic Area.

54 St James Street is a stunning and unique new building conveniently located in the Baltic Triangle area. From this location, The Women’s Organisation delivers a range of gender focused enterprise and economic development programmes to increase and improve the economic independence of women in Merseyside. This prestigious and fully accessible location offers a range of individually styled rooms for hosting meetings, conferences and private events and provides a range of tenanted office space and virtual office facilities.
