Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Merseyrail will be running a reduced timetable, with trains every 30 minutes on all lines. There are likely to be further amendments to our timetable over the coming weeks, and we encourage all customers to check before you travel. We ask passengers to follow government advice and avoid unnecessary travel. Our priority is to provide a service for key workers and essential journeys. There are changes to Wirral line services on Sunday 29th March, please check before you travel.
National Railcards can be used with single and return ticket purchases after 10am. Before 10am the minimum spend that a Railcard can be used against is £12, more that the cost of the longest journey on the Merseyrail network.
Railcards can’t be used when buying Day Saver, Family Ticket or Railpass tickets, with the exception of the 16 - 17 Saver Card. However, Merseyrail Day Saver and Railpass tickets are already half price for anyone aged 18 or under so the Railcard is not needed to benefit from cheaper fares on these tickets.
16 -17 Saver Card
Launched in August 2019, the 16-17 Saver card gives 50% off most National Rail fares. It is valid to use for travel on or after 2 September 2019.
Available to anyone aged 16 or 17, the card costs just £30 and is valid for one year or until you turn 18. It can be used to get 50% off standard Anytime, Off-Peak, Advance and Season Tickets.
