Allerton is paired with nearby Hunts Cross to form the Allerton and Hunts Cross city council ward. The population of this ward at the 2011 census was 14,853.
In the past ten years many new bars and restaurants have opened on Allerton Road, Mossley Hill and it is a popular place for pubgoers.

Allerton is served by two railway stations: Liverpool South Parkway on the border of Allerton and Garston (it is the railway track running from Liverpool South Parkway from the old Allerton Station that separates Garston from Allerton), and West Allerton on Booker Avenue. Both stations offer services to Liverpool city centre and Manchester, but Liverpool South Parkway also has services to Southport and Hunts Cross (on the Merseyrail Northern Line) and also the fast service to Birmingham. The former Allerton railway station has been replaced with Liverpool South Parkway, although the old platforms are in use at the new station.
The nearest major bus stop is at Liverpool South Parkway, with the 86 service to the city centre and bus shuttles to Liverpool John Lennon Airport. There are several bus stops around Aigburth with links to various districts throughout the city and also the city centre.

Allerton Road features in the Beatles' song, "Penny Lane". The 'shelter in the middle of the roundabout', the barber shop and possibly the bank (whose banker 'never wears a Mac') mentioned in the song are all located on Smithdown Place, Mossley Hill, which is at the junction of Allerton Road, Penny Lane and Smithdown Road. The suburb of Allerton also features in the first episode of BBC Drama Spooks, where a bomb exploded outside the home of a family planning doctor. The attack was organised by a group of pro-life campaigners.
