Christmas Cracker Of A Rail Sale! November 10, 2008

Let the train, not the rein-deer, take the strain this Christmas

This could possibly be our first Christmas-related post of 2008. WOO-HOO!!! Deck the halls, and all that…


Merseytravel is lining up a ‘cracker’ of a promotion in the run up to Christmas with a festive flat return fare on Merseyrail of just £1 to anywhere in Merseyside.

The aim of the deal is to set tills ringing in town centres across the region and bring Christmas cheer to thousands people.

Tens of thousands of people took advantage of last year’s Christmas Cracker, which runs every Thursday evening (for late night shopping) in the six-week run up to Christmas – beginning on Thursday 13th November.

It also runs all day every Sunday during December until Christmas – from 7th December.

Merseytravel’s annual Christmas gift to rail customers, now in its 14th year, also gives a seasonal boost to the region’s economy and helps reduce traffic congestion in urban centres.

Tickets go on sale at Merseyrail stations from 4pm every Thursday (between 13th November and 18th December), except at Liverpool city centre stations where they will go on sale from 6pm, as well as all day on Sundays in December until Christmas.

The offer is valid on Wirral, Northern and City Lines within the Merseyside boundary.

The £1 return flat fare extends to stations outside Merseyside as far as Chester, Ellesmere Port and Ormskirk. The offer means customers can travel from Southport to Chester and back for £1.

A total of 31 Merseyrail stations currently offer free park and ride facilities.
