Merseyrail announces return to 15-minute services

Merseyrail will return to more regular service in May

Merseyrail today announced that it will begin to operate a 15-minute service across most of its network from Monday 2 May.

During the COVID-19 pandemic Merseyrail services were reduced due to the impact the virus had on staffing numbers, however, with restrictions removed and more staff available, the rail operator is pleased to announce a return to its pre-COVID frequency.

The changes are as follows:

  • Southport line – every 15 minutes from the start to the end of service
  • All other lines (except Ellesmere Port) – every 15 minutes between approximately 07:00 and 19:00, with a 30-minute service operating outside of these hours
  • Ellesmere Port line – every 30 minutes from the start to the end of service every day with additional trains running between 07:15 and 08:30 for the morning peak and 16:30 and 17:30 for the evening peak Monday to Friday

A 30-minute service will operate on Sundays across all lines.

Full timetable information can be found here.

Andy Heath, Managing Director at Merseyrail, said: “I’m thrilled that we are able to announce a return to a 15-minute service across most of our network. We have worked hard throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to deliver the most reliable service possible to the people of the Liverpool City Region.

“Our customers have been incredibly patient during this time, and I thank them for that as we adapted to a very challenging set of circumstances because of the pandemic.”
