We can take you from the beautiful Roman city of Chester, to the picturesque seaside resort of Southport, and with four stations across the Liverpool city centre, travelling across Merseyside for business or pleasure could not be easier.
With so much to see on our network, and so many different tickets and passes available, there really is no excuse to not get out and about in 2018.
With return travel starting at just £2.05, and our Day Saver offering unlimited off-peak travel from £5.20, we've got options for any journey.
Anytime Single / Return Tickets
