MERSEYRAIL say they are doing their best to keep the services on track during coronavirus.
From cleaning to social distancing and contactless payments, railway staff are trying to keep the borough moving in the safest possible way.
A spokesperson said: “We’ve been busy putting a number of measures in place to make travelling on the Merseyrail network as safe and easy as possible.
“From a new timetable with more services to enhanced cleaning and a new ticket.
“We are cleaning trains and stations throughout the day, every day. From preventative microbial cleaning products to increasing litter picking in our trains and around our stations.”
The additional cleaning measures includes round the clock sanitising with deep cleans carried out overnight. There is then a ‘second round’ of cleans conducted by on-board cleaners during services.
Merseyrail say they also have a new ‘Flexi-Ticket’, which is designed to assist with social distancing.
A spokesperson added: “To assist with social distancing, and to support passengers who are now travelling differently we have introduced the Merseyrail Flexi-Ticket. With just one visit to the ticket office you can buy three return journeys valid for travel over seven days. It is available to buy now from any staffed station and ticket machines.”
