This will extend the geographic scope of MyTicket to places like Runcorn and Widnes.

The operators have raised the age limit on their young people’s products up to and including the age of 18 and have reduced the fares by 50% off the adult fare for young people, in most cases, across Merseyside. Arriva and Halton -Transport have also extended these changes into the Halton Borough Council Area.
