Safer Travel PledgeShare
Merseyrail has continued running rail services as part of the national effort to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. In line with latest government advice please only travel if you need to, such as to and from work or school. If you do need to travel with us, you should maintain social distancing wherever possible and remember passengers must wear their own face covering whilst on our trains, unless exempt. The government has made this mandatory from 15 June 2020. Please also wear one at our stations and check our information pages before you travel. A £6,400 maximum fine applies.
