The Liverpool University Public Transport Society (LUPTS) was formed in 1958 by a group of undergraduate students at the University with a mutual interest in all kinds of transport.   Over the next 33 years, it organised meetings and afternoon trips, ran tours by rail, bus and tram, published a number of booklets and was active, locally and nationally, in the enthusiast world.

One of its earliest projects was the generation of support for the preservation of Glasgow tram 1055, previously Liverpool 869, and this led to the formation of the Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society, with tram itself  eventually passing to the National Tramway Museum at Crich.  LUPTS continued as an active student society through the 60s, 70s and 80s but, with declining numbers, was forced to disband in 1991.   LUPTS therefore no longer exists but groups of former members continue to perpetuate its name.   It no longer has any connection with the University of Liverpool.   These web pages have been created to give an online presence for the exiled Society.
