From the 1st September 2015, the age eligibility for young persons' tickets was extended to 18 years and under.
This means that public transport is now more affordable for 16, 17 and 18 year olds with young people's tickets and fares.
Bus, Train, Ferry

All-Areas Saveaways extend to the whole of Merseyside – as far as Chester, Ellesmere Port and Ormskirk (by rail only).

Saveaway Ticket Options
Saveaway is now available on a smartcard! Smart Saveaways are available to buy from any PayPoint store or Merseytravel Centre across the whole of Merseyside. The smart Saveaways are replacing the traditional ‘scratch off’ Saveaways.
There are two other ways to buy Saveaways that won’t be moving onto a smartcard. You can still buy paper versions of Saveaway from any staffed rail station as well as from ticket vending machines at any Merseytravel Centre across Merseyside.
