Train services between Hunts Cross and Liverpool Central are currently suspended due to a cable fault causing the power supply to the third rail to be severely reduced. Rail replacement buses are running between all affected stations. We have been advised by Network Rail that it is unlikely that services will be running between Hunts Cross and Liverpool Central until start of service on Monday morning (22 July). If Network Rail identify the problem and fix the fault before this time, we will reinstate the normal train service well in advance of Monday. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience during this time. Please click the link above for more details.
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.
