From Monday 18 May, Merseyrail will be increasing services on the network, including reinstating some services before 07:00 and after 19:00, Monday – Saturday. Services will continue to run between approximately 08:00 – 20:00 on Sundays.
Merseyrail has announced that its ticket prices will increase by an average of 2.9% in January, ensuring that it still offers some of the lowest fares on the railway.
Its popular Day Saver ticket, which offers unlimited travel after 0930 on weekdays and anytime on weekends and bank holidays, will rise by just 1.9% to £5.30 for an adult all-zone ticket.
The rail operator will continue to keep family days out affordable as its Family Ticket price will be frozen at £11 for the third consecutive year.
Merseyrail’s Commercial Director, Suzanne Grant said:
“Merseyrail continues to be the most affordable and the most punctual network in the country. 98% of fares are reinvested back in to the railway, which enables further improvements to be made to the network so that we can continue to deliver a reliable and robust service for our passengers”.
In the Spring 2018 National Rail Passenger Survey, Merseyrail was voted as the number one franchised operator and one of the top two for offering value for money. The operator also became the first to win three awards at the prestigious National Rail Awards, including the flagship title of Passenger Operator of the Year 2018.
