From Sunday 5 July timetable changes will be made as additional services will run. Passengers are advised that face coverings must be worn on the Merseyrail network at all times.
With just one visit to the ticket office you can buy 3 return journeys valid for travel over 7 days with a Merseyrail Flexi-Ticket and benefit from the following:
- Greater ability to socially distance by queueing once to buy three return journeys
- A new ticket designed for those who are making a few necessary journeys per week
The Merseyrail Flexi-Ticket is for journeys on the Merseyrail network only, the 3 journeys need to be the same and the origin or destination station must be a gated station, such as Liverpool Central, Conway Park, Southport, Moorfields, James Street, Liverpool South Parkway, Chester, Hamilton Square or Lime Street. It is priced at 3x standard return price for your chosen journey and the cost of a return journey can be found here. Adult and child fares are available too.
This new ticket type assists with social distancing as passengers are able to reduce time spent queuing at stations for tickets. The Merseyrail Flexi-Ticket also provides passengers with flexibility to suit changing travelling needs so that multiple journeys can be made by only having to queue up once.
The Merseyrail Flexi-Ticket is available to buy from any staffed station and ticket machines from Monday 8 June and will be provided as paper tickets.
