The previous service on the 500 and 501 buses, which ran from Liverpool to Hamilton Square and New Brighton was withdrawn in April, which came less than a year after Arriva scrapped its own weekend cross-river night services, saying they were too costly to run.

The 500 and 501 buses were run by Ace Travel until the company went into liquidation on 1st March 2015. The route was then subsidised by Merseytravel and operated by Stagecoach until being withdrawn on 18th April 2015. Merseytravel said there were fewer than four people per service during the week and fewer than six at weekends.
