2023 Fares Increase


Merseyrail announces fares increase proposals for 2023 continuing to offer some of the best value tickets in the UK.

Merseyrail plans to increase its fares by an average of 6% from January 2023 but will continue to offer some of the best value tickets on the UK rail network.

We know that many in our communities are struggling with the cost of living. Whilst increases in costs associated with running the railway mean that prices do need to rise, we have worked hard to ensure that these are limited. Normally rail fares would increase by the underlying rate of inflation, which is currently 12.3%. This impacts on the cost of things like the energy used to power our trains and the overall costs of running our stations.

We have also looked at ways to freeze the price of tickets that we know will benefit those who are more vulnerable to the current economic situation. As an example, we are proposing to freeze the cost of our Family Ticket which allows a family of up to 5 to make unlimited daily journeys for just £13.

The fares proposals, once formally approved, will come into effect from January 2023. Further information on ticket prices, including the specific increases for multi-modal tickets, will be available on our website and from our stations by the end of the year.
