    Following the Government’s announcement of the easing of lockdown restrictions last week, Merseyrail services will be increasing from Sunday 5 July.

    Full timetables and details can be found on the Merseyrail website, and passengers are encouraged to check before they travel.

    Merseyrail is doing everything possible to keep its passengers safe during their journey. Those needing to travel are reminded to;
    • Wear a face covering as per Government guidance
    • Use contactless payments where possible
    • Travel at quieter times
    • Wash or sanitise hands as soon as possible before and after travel
    • Follow advice from staff and be considerate to other passengers
    • Keep up to date with the latest official health advice.

    Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail, said: “During this pandemic, our staff have worked hard to ensure that train services have continued to operate for those who need them, albeit at a reduced level.
    “Following the Government’s announcement earlier this week, we are now in a position to increase our
    services in anticipation of increased numbers of passengers using our trains.

    I’d stress that the government guidance remains that public transport is to be used for necessary journeys only.
    “I would also like to remind our passengers that – as per government guidance – they must wear a face
    covering on public transport for the safety of yourselves, fellow passengers and our staff.”
