Kids Travel Free with Merseyrail on World Car Free Day

Ditch the car and explore the region with Merseyrail this Sunday and kids under 15 travel free!

World Car Free Day 2019 takes place on Sunday 22nd September and Merseyrail invites you to plan a fun, family day out on the train. To make it even easier to explore the Merseyside beaches, parks and attractions, kids go free! Up to four children age 15 and under can travel completely free of charge – with one paying adult.

Merseyrail services connect Liverpool city centre with Wirral and Southport and many places in between. Why not plan a day on the sand dunes at Crosby Beach, penny slots and ice-cream at Southport Pier, a bike ride along the Wirral Way or maybe visit one of the free to enter Liverpool Museums? The possibilities are endless!

Did you know you can travel all day with Merseyrail for as little as £4 per adult? Day Saver tickets can be purchased online or at the station. Choose your zone or choose all zones for just £5.30. You can have your ticket emailed to you before you even leave the house!
