Rethink Travel - how you can help

As lockdown restrictions start to ease, we’re asking everyone to rethink how they travel, considering if your journey is necessary and, if so, when and by what means you travel.

If you can work from home, then please continue to do so. However, if you do need to travel then we’re asking you to plan your journeys and take into account factors including social distancing and longer journey times. For more information please visit the Rethink Travel campaign on the Merseytravel website.

Face coverings

Wearing face coverings on public transport became mandatory in England from Monday 15 June, following a Government announcement on 4 June. The new guidance refers to face coverings, not medical face masks.

Face Covering FAQs

We’re waiting for further guidance on this and will let customers know more as this emerges.
