Railpass Term Time Ticket

Where can I use it? 

 

Railpass tickets are valid on trains in your chosen zones or areas across Merseyside and as far as Chester, Ellesmere Port and Ormskirk. Check which zone your journey starts in and which zone it ends in then make a note of the zones you travel through. Add the number of zones together (if you travel through two or more zones in one area, this counts as one area). If you find that your journey will take you outside your chosen ticket’s zone or area, simply pay the normal fare for the ‘extra’ part of your journey before the journey begins. You can combine different types of season tickets for journeys through different areas or zones. For example, you could travel from Liverpool to Ormskirk either by an all zones Railpass (rail only) or a Trio ticket for area C and a Railpass for Zone F. 

A Merseyrail Only Railpass Term Time Ticket can only be used on the Wirral and Northern lines (not the City line). More about Merseyrail Only Railpass here
