All About Walrus

Walrus is Merseytravel's all-in-one, contactless card for public transport across
Merseyside. You can load Saveaway tickets, Solo day bundles, weekly Solos and
4-weekly Solos, or weekly, monthly or annual Railpass tickets onto the card.

There is a £1 activation charge when you buy a new Walrus card - so if you already have a card, remember to keep hold of it.
