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.
Why not take the stress out of your commute and put yourself in a good place with us?
To get you started with us, we've put together a little guide to our network and everything Merseyrail has to offer...
Our Network covers both the Liverpool and Wirral regions, with 67 stations spread across Merseyside.
With four stations across Liverpool city centre, as well as a direct route to Chester, we've got your commute covered!
Anytime Single / Return Tickets
Travel at any time of the day locally or on the national rail network with a standard single or return ticket. Prices vary and are based on your station of origin and destination. Check the ticket price for your journey using the Journey Planner below.
Anytime Day Single and Anytime Day Return tickets are valid for one single or return journey on the date shown on the ticket.
Plan Your Journey
Use our Journey Planner on the left side of this page to plan your journey. You'll be shown the cost of your journey as well as the ticket options available for you to buy.
You could save time and money with a Railpass, how you spend your savings is your business!
Railpass is likely to work out cheaper than buying a daily ticket and you can buy one to cover a week, a month or even a year. The longer you get one for, the more you save. You also sidestep those early morning ticket queues and no more searching for your daily train fare. So more money in your pocket, more time on your hands. Add it to today’s list of smart decisions.
Weekly, monthly and annual Railpass products are valid all day within your chosen area, including evenings and weekends.
There are also Young Person's Railpass products for those aged 18 and under and there are Term time passes valid Monday to Friday, until 8pm, during term time only.
Use the Railpass Calculator to quickly check the cost of a Railpass for your journey and to see exactly how much you could save.
For example, if you normally buy five adult standard return tickets between Ormskirk and Liverpool Central every week, switching to a monthly Railpass would save you the equivalent of one week's travel a month!
How to purchase a Railpass
To purchase a Railpass, download and complete the application form at the bottom of this page, or here, and take it to any of our staffed stations, along with a passport-size photo and some form of identification. If you are purchasing a Term Time pass you will need to provide proof that you are in full-time education with a valid student card or by getting your application stamped by your education provider. Application forms are also available at our staffed stations.
