Merseyrail has added more services that will help passengers maintain social distancing. However, they remind us that in line with the latest government advice people should only travel if it is necessary, such as traveling to and from work or school.
The Merseyrail website goes on to say “When you travel with us, you should maintain social distancing wherever possible and remember passengers must wear [a] face-covering whilst on our trains, unless exempt. The government has made this mandatory from 15 June 2020. Please, also wear [a mask] at our stations and check our information pages before you travel.”
People using any public transport service without appropriate face-coverings face a maximum fine of £6,400 unless medically exempt.
Merseyrail has a dedicated COVID-19 information page on their website where you can find lots of travel advice regarding timetable changes, a travel checklist, FAQs and more >>> https://www.merseyrail.org/seasonal/covid-19-information.aspx
