COVID-19 Wirral Timetable Changes

Share

On Sunday 29 March there will be changes to timetables on the Wirral Line due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

As a result of the emergency measures imposed by the Prime Minister earlier this week and an increasing number of station, depot and onboard staff self-isolating due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of changes have been made to the timetable for this Sunday (29 March 2020).

  • There will be a 30 minute service operating on the Chester line between 08:00 and 20:00 calling at all stations.
  • There will be an hourly shuttle service operating between Ellesmere Port and Hooton stations from 08:00 and 20:00. Passengers can change at Hooton station to continue their onward journey.

  • On the West Kirby & New Brighton lines there will be a 45-minute service operating between 08:00 and 20:00 calling at all stations.

  • There will be no changes to services on the Northern Line.

Services from Monday will continue to operate every 30 minutes on all lines until further notice, however there are likely to be further amendments to timetables in the coming days as increasing numbers of staff are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We would encourage all customers to check before you travel.
