Merseyrail going back to 15-minute services

From Monday 2 May, Merseyrail has said it will start to operate a 15-minute service across most of its network.

This means a return to its pre-COVID frequency, the operator said.

The changes are as follows:

  • Southport line – every 15 minutes from the start to the end of service
  • All other lines (except Ellesmere Port) – every 15 minutes between approximately 07:00 and 19:00, with a 30-minute service operating outside of these hours
  • Ellesmere Port line – every 30 minutes from the start to the end of service every day with additional trains running between 07:15 and 08:30 for the morning peak and 16:30 and 17:30 for the evening peak Monday to Friday

A 30-minute service will operate on Sundays across all lines.

Andy Heath, managing director at Merseyrail, said: “I’m thrilled that we are able to announce a return to a 15-minute service across most of our network. We have worked hard throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to deliver the most reliable service possible to the people of the Liverpool City Region.

“Our customers have been incredibly patient during this time, and I thank them for that as we adapted to a very challenging set of circumstances because of the pandemic.”
